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 Muslim Women's Resource Centre 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 conversation about the films and how we overturn false and dated narratives, with participation from Amina MWRC, Raisah Ahmed, and 'One Day in Whitechapel' Director Seemab Gul.

There will also be a short reading by Rumaisa Zubairi, a medical student and poet who was commended as a Foyle Young Poet in 2016. Rumaisa has performed at the Young Scot Award Ceremony and Paisley Town Hall, and has worked with Scottish Makar Jackie Kay.

Full programme details will be added shortly.
