Apparently we made Cover of Coastweek Magazine, Mombasa

Just got back today from a quick safari trip ...

I got an SMS text saying we are on the cover of Coastweek Magazine. It should help as we have a very large cinema to fill in Mombasa!

The online vers is here:


Coastweek - - An Islamic Conscience: The Aga Khan And The Ismailis - Film Mombasa: 4:30 p.m., Saturday, June 21, 2008.

The acclaimed groundbreaking documentary film ‘An Islamic Conscience’ makes its Kenyan debut in Mombasa on Saturday, June 21, 2008.

Born into a world of wealth and privilege, H.H. the Aga Khan devotes his life to eliminating poverty and inequality.

A religious leader who traces his ancestry back to the Prophet Muhammad, he struggles to balance the traditional with the modern.

For the past five decades, the Aga Khan has been the spiritual leader and Imam of the 15 million Ismaili Muslims in a world that has changed dramatically.

From the end of colonialism and the expulsion of the Asians in Uganda to the fall of the Iron Curtain and 9/11, the Aga Khan has struggled for a common humanity in a divided world.

Securing a rare and exclusive interview with the Aga Khan in the year of his Golden Jubilee, Bill Cran (multiple Emmy-award winning Director) and Shamir Allibhai have completed a two-year passion project to make the first documentary on the Aga Khan in over forty-five years.

At a time when Islam is at odds with itself and with the West, the Aga Khan represents a voice of moderation, speaking out for pluralism and diversity, and promoting dialogue between civilizations.

But will he be heard?
