A video library that celebrates the rich culture and heritage of the Muslim world, past and present. Often described as the "Muslim Netflix", Alchemiya is a movement to provide positive, celebratory, beautiful, video content and challenges the distorted negative ‘tropes’ about Islam and Muslims.
Alchemiya has established itself as the ‘home’ of feel-good entertainment for anyone who wants to hear and see the everyday beauty present in Muslim communities everywhere.
We seek out and work with the most creative talent, both established and emerging, from the Global Muslim community. Content is selected for its appeal to universal audiences and we support an open minded, inclusive attitude, avoiding sectarian, political or narrow interpretations.
The film explores the rural border areas of Poonch, Surankote, Loran and Mandi, stretching through the beautiful and magnificent mountain ranges of Pir Panjal.
The aim is to break the common stereotype about the areas infamous for violence and cross-border conflict between India and Pakistan. The short documentary takes you on a journey through the shoes of a traveller for a pure and enriched realization about the people living there, their nomadic lives, politics, culture and a region of neglected beauty of Jammu & Kashmir.
