I am a final year student studying Journalism at the University of Kent and I am looking to film a documentary on what I like to call ‘The Modern Day Romeo & Juliet’ – a short film about young couples in inter-religious relationships and the challenges they face from their communities, friends or families.
I am looking for people willing to talk to me about their experience(s) so that I might investigate deep into the reasons how and why interfaith relationships can work, or conversely, don’t work.
As a young person in an ‘inter-religious’ relationship myself , I have experienced first hand and witnessed many others go through severe emotional stress often due to a families’ strong traditional or religious beliefs.
I am hoping that with your help, I can explore what lies in store for future generations… Will we have a different outlook on interfaith relationships in the future? And is the mix at university dissolving the segregation we currently still feel between religious communities in society? The new ‘class divide’ seems to be ‘cultural divide’.
If any member of your society could get in touch with me even just talk more about this issue, and the work you do – please get in touch. Your input would be invaluable to me.
My head professor is well known journalist and academic professor Tim Luckhurst, firstname.lastname@example.org former editor of the Scotsman Newspaper and my project supervisor is Richard Pendry, academic and conflict reporter: email@example.com.
