A new documentary that addresses cultural misunderstandings about Muslims will be shown to high school students in South Australia.
The short film, created by the University of South Australia, features young Muslims discussing their day-to-day experiences and concerns.
It aims to challenge the assumptions that dominate the media and society about Islam and Muslim culture.
The university's director of the International Centre for Muslim and Non-Muslim Understanding, Professor AbdouMaliq Simone, hopes it will give students a sense of the ordinary among others who "seem different to them".
"These young people have inherited certain kinds of notions about what faith is, about what the right way to do things are," he said.
One of the four young Muslims who feature in the film, Yassir Morsi, says he has confronted racism in Australia.
