Summary The adhan is the Muslim call to prayer, an invitation to sacred space traditionally recited by a muezzin at a mosque five times each day. Cairo has thousands of mosques, and with countless muezzins chanting the call simultaneously there is a holy cacophony that reverberates through the city’s soundscape. Enter the Ministry of Religious Endowments with the concept of a unified adhan, a single call from one muezzin broadcast from a central radio station to a network of 4,000 officially recognized mosques, each relaying this unified adhan through its own sound system. This beautiful and timely film is full of rich details of everyday life and maintains a quiet respect for the range of opinions voiced on either side of this somewhat unpopular edict. Official Selection at the **Full Frame Documentary Film Festival**.
