Bravo on a fine film. You capture not only the significance of the gift of the Torah, but the enormous accomplishment of John Sexton in opening the Emirates to interreligious dialogue and progressive values.

I LOVE the film! Congratulations to the team. The editing is fantastic!
AmenTheFilm tells a wonderful and rich story about religious tolerance and generosity in an age of polarization and acrimony. Based on the decision of a group of Jews to finance the writing of a Torah scroll as a gift to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, AmenThe Film provides a window into the age-old act of gift-giving and illustrates the way simple gestures can have a profound impact on social and religious conflict. When religions bring their best and most gracious selves to the table, what often results is majesty and hope. AmenTheFilm evokes that sentiment.
