Erika Cohn

Palestine/USA / 2017 / 81 minutes / DCP / Color

Shari’a law has been caricatured in the West as a system of rigidity, extremism and oppression, especially with regards to Muslim women. Judge Kholoud al-Faqih, however, shatters many of our stereotypes as a leader in the first of a group of women who have been appointed to religious courts in the last decade, blending progress and tradition as she works to inspire other Muslim women by her strength and judgment. A fascinating revelation by Middle-Eastern documentarian specialist Erika Cohn. Screening with The Tesla World Light (8min).
