Investigating Paradise
Algeria, 120 mins
Genre: Documentary
Arabic/French with English subtitles

Nedjma, a young investigative journalist for an Algerian daily, is spurred to    action    by the ongoing instrumentalisation of the concept of paradise in extremist propaganda and calls     to djihad by Middle Eastern Salafist preachers ever-present on the    Internet. She decides    to    investigate the    place of paradise in the Muslim imagination.    Assisted by Mustapha, her colleague, she    criss-crosses Algeria    in search of a    panoply of opinions, young and old, male    and female, intellectual and street-smart.
