TRAILBLAZERS AND TROUBLEMAKERS: FILMMAKERS TELLING THE STORIES OF JEWISH & MUSLIM WOMEN

Presented together with the Fentster installation Blood, Milk and Tears, Canadian filmmakers Zarqa Nawaz (journalist and creator of CBC’s Little Mosque on the Prairie) and Francine Zuckerman (writer, producer and director, Z Films inc) share insights and excerpts from their ground-breaking documentaries, Me and the Mosque and Half the Kingdom. These films focus on the efforts of Muslim and Jewish women to reconcile deeply held faith commitments with their desires for equal access to communal and ritual spaces.

Join these visionary filmmakers in conversation about the impact of their films and their ongoing relevance in the current political climate. Together, the installation and the films reveal the complicated nature of religious identities in the 21st Century.

Blood, Milk & Tears is on view 24/7 at FENTSTER, an independent exhibition space located in the storefront window of the grassroots community Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism at 402 College Street.

Shema & Iqra’: The Jewish-Muslim Text Project brings together Muslims and Jews using religious texts as a springboard for dialogue. In early 2016, Shema & Iqra’ ran the “Blood, Milk and Tears” textual-study and arts collective for Jewish and Muslim women artists investigating links between gender, embodiment and identity. The FENTSTER installation is an outgrowth of that initial program.
