Between Allah & Me (and Everyone Else)

Director: Kyoko Yokoma | Canada | 2015 | 59mins.
Website: www.hijabdocumentary.com

No dress code inspires more debate than that of Muslim women. In North America, the way a Muslim woman dresses is her personal choice, but that choice, which includes whether or not to wear hijab to cover her hair, is often met with both approval and criticism. Meet Farida, Shaila, Naima, and Sara, four Muslim women in Toronto making decisions about their personal dress codes. The film follows the women’s personal journeys and their interactions with different members of society, and in doing so reveals that the piece of fabric called hijab carries many diverse meanings and messages. As these women try to follow their faith and their hearts at the same time, the film unveils the intricate and complex effects of hijab on Muslim women, their families and communities, and the larger multicultural society in which they live.
