Between Allah And Me
From Sara Huber
Between Allah & Me (and Everyone Else) explores the challenges faced by four practicing Muslim women in Toronto as they decide to start or stop wearing hijab. While making decisions about their own personal dress codes, these women encounter a variety of people with different opinions about the hijab and what it represents. Capturing both deep emotions and humour, this film unveils how the hijab carries many diverse meanings and messages that might surprise non-Muslims and Muslims alike. It also reveals the intricate and complex effects that wearing the hijab has on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in the West.
