Please join us at the Center’s lounge for a screening of al imam, a short documentary directed by Omar Al Dakheel. The film documents the experience of Ani Zonneveld, the founder/president of Muslims for Progressive Values and one of the world’s few women imams. Produced at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, al imam is a student-produced film that explores Zonneveld’s recognition of Islam as an egalitarian religion and the Qur’an as a progressive text, as well as her work to help others understand these things as well.
Feel free to bring movie-going snacks, or enjoy the snacks that will be provided. Space is limited, so please RSVP here or email firstname.lastname@example.org. After the viewing, be sure to stay for discussion time! You can check out the movie trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gxDstsswxA
