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 tells the story of Ali, a 25-year-old Tunisian man who lives in Rome. His family's political and religious circumstances imposed on him a complex reality. Because of this, the young man lacks a real sense of belonging and does not know for himself a homeland and feels dispersed. The real feeling he has is that he is a "stranger" no matter where and whenever he is.
