  • We are researching for a documentary to be shot in 2009 and we are looking for cases where communities or organizations from multiple religions share a space or common goal and do it in peace. In any country.

    For example: a non profit organization of christians and muslims that help children in need, or a special family whose members practice different religions, but still have a good family relationship, etc.

    Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance!

    Hi Gabriel,
    I am writing you from Croatia. I am thinking about some organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which might be from multiple religions and share a space or common goal and do it in peace.
    Don’t hesitate to contact me and I will try to help you if you could send me brief of the project.

    Hi,

    My name is Joe Yaggi from Jungle Run Productions. We’re based in Indonesia, the world’s largest muslim country on an island that is primarily Hindu. There’s a couple of places in the country like this where diverse religions live together and, in some cases, share ceremonial laws and life. If this sounds interesting, drop me a line and I’ll be happy to tell you more about us. My email is joe at jungle-run dot com.

    There is a village in Israel where Palestinians and Jews live together ; it’s called Nevé Shalom Wahat as-Salam, on the road from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It means “Oasis of Peace”.

    Does shooting in Jordan sound OK.
    In Jordan you can fing Christians and Muslims working and living together. The best example is the city of Madaba, with the Byzantene church, Mount Neba, lots of Mosques and Islamic sites.

    Hi, I’m Jonathan from e-Locations Asia. Malaysia will be ideal as it is a multi-ethnic, multi-racial and multi-religion nation. Many families are of mixed marriages and culture is borne by the bond and the understanding with much mutual respect for one another. Please feel free to call me to discuss further of this project or simply mail me at ramesh@e-locations.tv. ….. Cheers

    Hello from Ukraine!
    West Ukraine should be interesting for you. There are churches where Orthodox priest and Catholic priest work in the same place. In the early morning people are going to Orthodox priest, in the afternoon they are going to Catholic priest. The same church, the same people. And then…. Then in the evening they are going to the witches… :)
    If you are interested this situation too, please contact me.

    Hi Gabriel,
    Altough there is some potential for a religous conflict in Indonesia recently, there were many cases that peoples/organization between different organization work side by side here. Exp: Muslim organization will have a vigil during Xmas Eve, Christian Church have open house feed Muslim orphan/needy. In Bali, Hindu’s community guard Muslim minority’s village, etc. Most of people in grass root believe that they dont have problems with other people with different religion.
