Hip Hop Hijabis

Hip Hop Hijabis

, 10:42 am Wednesday, 25th February 2015

A film directed by Mette Reitzel (A Faction Films’ Production for Witness, Al Jazeera English), Muslim converts Sukina and Muneera of Hip Hop duo ‘Poetic Pilgrimage’ goes on a quest to spiritually reconcile their new faith with their feminist sensibilities and Jamaican roots.

Also in celebration of the International Women’s Day on March 8, ‘Poetic Pilgrimage’ provides a candid, and perhaps surprising, snapshot of contemporary Islam, where some believe music and female performance is forbidden while others share their passion.

A universal story about friendship, love and idealism… and two young women finding their place in the world.
