Project description

English EN

Feminist films made by Muslim women

The Muslim female identity is evolving. Islam and feminism are no longer a contradiction. Against difficult odds, Muslim women are claiming their place behind the camera to challenge the status quo and introduce a women-centric approach to the narrative. The EU-funded MUSLIMWOMENFILM project aims to examine Muslim women’s contribution to feminist auto/biographical cinema. It will identify and categorise films produced by Muslim women filmmakers from the Islamic world from the 1980s. By doing so, it will be able to examine Muslim women’s contribution to feminist cinema as regards political, personal, historical, social and institutional conditions.
