Synopsis

Seyran Ateş - a Turkish- German lawyer, feminist, and one of the first female imams in Europe - is fighting for a sexual revolution within Islam. In return, she was shot, received fatwas and death threats, and now has to live under constant police protection. Seyran believes the only way to fight against radical Islam is through Islam, which is why, in her liberal mosque, there is no gender segregation or exclusion based on sexual orientation.

This digital screening includes a moderated filmmaker conversation that will be on demand with the film. Participants to be announced soon!

Captioning and ASL will be provided for this virtual showing and conversation.
