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.
The hajj, one of the “five pillars” of Islam, is the pilgrimage to the city of Mecca, in Saudi Arabia, that all Muslims should make at least once in their lifetime if their health and financial means allow it, according to Islamic tradition. Inspired by the British Museum’s film Hajj Stories (http://tinyurl.com/britishhajj), staff at the Asian Art Museum asked Bay Area Muslims who have performed the hajj to share experiences of their journeys.
