MYM: War Has No Eyes

This is a well-crafted short film that attempts to bridge the gap between a young man’s religious expectations and his personal freedom. To me, “war has no eyes” means, there is more than one way to generate change in this world.

The lead character, Mahmoud, is a young Muslim man living in the United Kingdom. The film highlights Mahmoud’s imperfections and his journey back to the roots of his Islamic faith with the help of his mentor. During his former years, Mahmoud was subjected to negative influences, ones that were meant to turn him down a dark path. He could have come to be those odious things, but instead Mahmoud chose to better himself. As the film progresses, Mahmoud realizes that living a fruitful life can be about having both, an existence of full possibilities and a dedication to his faith.
