Imam and I

Imam and I, a documentary about the life and death of Imam Haroon, will be shown in Cape Town at the Labia on Orange cinema on Sunday 27 November at 12:00 noon.

On behalf of While You Were Sleeping and the Imam Abdullah Haroon Education Trust (IAHET), you are cordially invited you to a screening of The Imam and I, a feature-length documentary directed by Khalid Shamis. The film illuminates the life, death and legacy of Imam Haroon, an anti-apartheid activist who was killed in detention in 1969, after being pronounced a terrorist by the security police.

The screenings will be followed by a facilitated audience discussion and Q&A session with Khalid Shamis, the film’s director.


Tickets are R20 and can be reserved by calling The Labia at (021) 424 5927. We strongly recommended that you reserve tickets to avoid disappointment.

This event is presented by the Imam Abdullah Haroon Education Trust, the Labia and While You Were Sleeping, a Cape Town-based non-profit film collective committed to bringing progressive, non-mainstream documentaries with important social, political and environmental messages to South African audiences.
