GSFF19 | Reclaim the Name

Thu 14 March 2019

"The victim, the oppressed, the one without a voice. That’s not us. We’re taking the power back, reclaiming and defining what it means to be Muslim women."

Curated by Amina MWRC and Scottish filmmaker Raisah Ahmed, this is a strand of films from around the world that showcase the voices and talents of female Muslim filmmakers. Focusing on a range of themes, genres and approaches, this programme does away with pigeonholing and lifts stereotypes through honesty, humour and bravery. The screening will be followed by a performance of spoken word poetry and a discussion on the themes of the films and how we overturn false and dated narratives.
