  • Based on a true story of one man rising up in a nation of corrupt merchants, leaders, charlatans and poets and preaching justice, equality and the notion of one community under one God.

This is a muscular story about the fight for freedom which is rich and vibrant and authentic. However, Bilal’s beefy approach also extends to scenes of torture and bloodthirsty battle sequences.

Bilal is a grand-scale, fast-paced animated adaptation that is both empowering and inspiring in its call for social justice and equality.
