Marjoun & The Flying Headscarf

Saturday, September 21, 2019

Marjoun, 17-years old, dressed all in black, with dark hair and eyes, is fighting—her father is unjustly held in the county jail, a family friend is making unwanted advances, and she feels an outsider in her home of Little Rock Arkansas. Set in 2006, in the aftermath of 9/11, the Second Intifada, and Iraq War, the film explores the treatment of Arab and Muslim Americans through the eyes of 17-year old Marjoun who adopts the headscarf as an exterior statement of her decision to assert herself and save her sanity. Join us following the movie for a talk back with actress Hannah Youssef. Part of the Southern Circuit of Independent Films, supported by South Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
