Half-Moon Above Edelweiss is a documentary about the first mosque in the Alps, one built in the village of Log pod Mangartom, Slovenia, in 1916. Unique in the Alpine setting, the mosque was constructed by Bosnian Muslim soldiers who fought for the Austrian-Hungarian Empire in the battles of the Isonzo. The films draws parallels with the present, with the Bosnians who migrated to Slovenia for economic reasons, and their 30-year-long efforts to build a mosque in Ljubljana. The film brings face to face various aspects – the Slovenian one, the Bosnian one, and the Italian one.
