Mohamed le prenom

  -    -  Mohamed le prenom

Mohamed is the most popular first name in the world. It has however never been easy to be called so in the Western world. Mohamed, a small ten-year-old boy, tells us why he doesn’t like his name, through true life experiences.

The aim of this short film is to fight against racial prejudices.

In order to make the message light-hearted and accessible, the film director wanted circus music for the film, thus giving a humoristic flavour to a serious subject.
