About Submission

The film’s title ‘Submission’ is a direct translation of the word “Islam”

Submission is a 10 minute film in English written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and directed by Theo van Gogh. The short film was broadcasted in August 29, 2004.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali (a former member of the Dutch House of Representatives for the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy).

The film tells the story of 4 fictional characters played by a single actress wearing a veil, but clad in a see-through chador, her naked body painted with verses from the Koran.

The characters are Muslim women who have been abused in various ways. The film contains monologues of these women and dramatically highlights three verses of the Quran (4:34 2:222 and 24:2) that authorize mistreatment of women, by showing them painted on womens bodies.

On November 2, 2004, Theo van Gogh was assassinated in public by Mohammed Bouyeri, Moroccan muslim with a dutch passport. A letter stabbed through and affixed to the body by a dagger, linked the murder to Van Gogh’s film and his views regarding Islam.

After the murder of Theo van Gogh, Submission gained international fame.
