Filmmakers Telling the Stories of Jewish & Muslim Women

On Sunday, April 30, at 7:30 pm, at the Noor Cultural Centre, join two filmmakers who tell the stories of Jewish and Muslim women in their documentaries.  

Presented together with the FENTSTER installation, Blood, Milk and Tears, Canadian filmmakers Zarqa Nawaz (journalist and creator of CBC's Little Mosque on the Prairie) and Francine Zuckerman (writer, producer and director) share insights and excerpts from their ground-breaking documentaries, Me & The Mosque and Half the Kingdom. These films focus on the efforts of Muslim and Jewish women to reconcile deeply held faith commitments with their desires for equal access to communal and ritual spaces.

Join these visionary filmmakers in conversation about the impact of their films and their ongoing relevance in the current political climate. Together, the installation and the films reveal the complicated nature of religious identities in the 21st Century.
