Submission: A political satire



Al Jazeera Arabic Channel will broadcast this Sunday (07/01/2018) a film entitled “Submission” based on a novel by French writer Michel Houellebecq. The French edition of the book was published on January 7th 2015 by Flammarion.

The novel, a political satire, imagines a situation in which a Muslim party upholding traditionalist and patriarchal values is able to win the 2022 presidential election in France with the support of the Socialist Party. The novel drew an unusual amount of attention because it was released on the day of the Charlie Hebdo shooting.

The executive producer: Mohammed Alsaedi, directed by: Mohammad Omar, researched by: Dr. Saeed Salmi and cameraman: Ammar Tamimi.
