“Beliefs” encourages observers to reflect on why acceptance and tolerance are important, for both the wider community and the individual. We live in a global mosaic where individuals can lose their sense of the broader picture. “Beliefs” stresses that beyond our religious differences, we do share similar aspirations and moral values. Viewers can engage with this fundamental human value and reflect on the importance of tolerance and the acceptance of others, toward seeing that diversity of opinion is an essential asset of our societies and that it promotes democracy and harmony among us.
