Movie That Set Off Violence in Middle East Produced by Duarte Nonprofit
An inflammatory anti-Muslim film that has been blamed in this week’s deadly attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya was produced by a Duarte-based Christian non-profit, officials said.
Media for Christ, which has its administrative offices south of the 210 Freeway in Duarte, took out a film permit for the production, according to City Manager Darrell George.
The producers also used Blue Cloud studios in Santa Clarita, also known as Blue Cloud Movie Ranch, as the film’s location, George said.
“It was filmed in Santa Clarita,” George said. He said he obtained the information from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
The film negatively portrays the prophet Mohammed as a sex-obsessed, bisexual who thrives on acts of sadistic violence. Several scenes are fairly pornographic including one which appears to depict Mohammed engaged in oral sex.
Much of the film was obviously shot in front of a green screen, several portions - especially where Islam is defamed - have been clearly overdubbed.
Typically overdubs and green screen shots are done in post production studios.
