VEILS

BY TOM COASH, DIRECTED BY LIA FAKHOURI

IMG_2077.jpg

Intisar, a veiled African-American Muslim student, thought she might finally fit in when she enrolled for a year abroad at the American Egyptian University in Cairo.

Samar, her non-veiled Egyptian roommate, enlists Intisar’s help in creating an internet blog about the controversial practice of wearing veils (or not), in hopes of challenging Western assumptions of Muslim culture and bridging the gap between the West and the Middle-East.

As Egypt hurtles toward revolution, Intisar and Samar are surprised to find themselves on opposite sides of a bitter cultural divide. Will the violent events and emotions leading up to the revolution salvage their friendship or shatter it?
