Summary
In this 80-minute documentary, three 10-year old children leave their native countries to participate in one of the Islamic world's most famous competitions, a test of memory and recitation known as The International Holy Koran Competition. As the competition reaches its climax, Koran By Heart offers a compelling and nuanced glimpse into some of the pressures faced by the next generation of Muslims.
"110 kids from the Islamic world are chosen and arrive in Cairo for the world's oldest Koran reciting contest. Koran by heart follows two boys from Senegal and Tajikistan, and a little girl from Maldives - who go head-to-head with kids nearly twice their age in the pronunciation, recitation and perfected memorization of the Koran. Even as their own future hangs in the balance, they are caught between fundamentalist and moderate visions of Islam"--IMDb.
