Me & the Mosque
Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. In North America, a large number of converts are women. Many are drawn to the religion because of its emphasis on social justice and spiritual equality between the sexes.
Ironically many mosques force women to pray behind barriers away from the men, and some mosques do not even permit women to enter the building. When it comes to user-friendlyness for women, Canadian mosques run the entire gamut.
In this film, journalist and filmmaker Zarqa Nawaz visits mosques throughout Canada and talks to scholars, colleagues, friends and neighbours about equal access for women.
With original animation, archival footage and deeply personal interviews, Me & the Mosque is a smart, self-aware and whimsical story that documents the debates and presents the personalities on all sides of the issue.
