You're only ever a stranger once here!!!
There are amongst us unique individuals whom at first glance we wouldn't think much of. Yet we may be engaging with an unsung hero. Individuals who aren't after accolade or status but merely concerned with their community and their social responsibility. They'll devote their time in assisting others putting their own personal desires and ambitions aside and so demonstrate the most noblest and dignified of qualities that truly affirms what it means to be a human being.
This short film is about such a person who sits true to the above in every way. A person who devotes time in inspiring young people of all backgrounds with the qualities of empathy, consideration, selflessness, responsibility, harmony and love for one another, cemented with passion. He's a devout muslim, something you won't see in the mainstream media, epitomising the real human qualities of his faith.
The film also exemplifies true integration and understanding can be achieved irrespective of colour, faith, gender, age or social status if the people really want it to. This centres around the most humane and basic of qualities simply desiring for others what you desire for yourself. It is a paradox a violent sport such as boxing is the common thread here but there is much to contemplate.
EMTEP had to have this on film and so put the whole media concept and idea together. In collaboration with a media specialist they successfully pursued the idea with NFM - Northern Film Media. The film has since been shown on community channel and at other airings in the North East. It has galvanised EMTEP as a producer of quality media output focussed on the voluntary and third sector.
Finally, there are further stories to be told here, personal struggles and achievements, success and failures both individually and as a group dealing with the tribulations of life. We do hope to bring these to you in the near future.
Meantime please enjoy and let us know what you think.
