Channel 4 in the UK is running a project called ‘Osama Loves’ as part of its Islam Season. The project is currently in blog form and will be made into an hour-long film aired on the channel sometime in September.
Farrah and Masood are in the last week of their journey across the world – attempting to find 500 ‘Osamas’ in 50 days to ask each one of them, “What do you love?”. It’s easy to gather from reading their online journal that it’s been a difficult project for a number of reasons. They’ve encountered many obstacles along the way – not least of which, I imagine, discovering well into their journey that they’d been denied a visa to continue their search in the U.S., where many of the 500+ Osamas on Facebook reside.
