A movie about three Muslim children learning the Quaran will be shown from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Cesar Chavez Central Library, 605 N. El Dorado St., Stockton.
A discussion will be held after the 77-minute film. The public is invited, and refreshments will be served.
The film is a coming-of-age story about two boys, from West Africa and Central Asia, and a girl from the Indian Ocean nation of Maldives as they explore their experiences and aspirations as they seek to learn the Quaran, the central religious text of Islam. It will have English subtitles.
The discussion will be led by Dr. Loel Lohr, multi-faith chaplain and director of religious and spiritual life at University of the Pacific. Lohr will be joined by Stockton native Ehsan Younus, imam of North Stockton’s Masjid Umar Farooq (the soon-to-be Madina Center in Morada).
