Alchemiya is an online TV streaming service dedicated to bringing you the best Movies, Drama and Documentaries about the Muslim world.
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.
This is the story of a calligraphic script that is almost extinct, yet which was once a crucial part of the most extraordinary cultural flourishing of the Middle Ages. We trace its journey from its origins in Madinah to its pinnacle in Al-Andalus, where we look at the rich context it evolved in. How did this once ubiquitous style fall into disuse, and what remains of it today?
