1700% Project: Mistaken for Muslim
Women's Voices Now is pleased to have the 1700% Project as part of our upcoming Film Festival: Voices from the Muslim World.
A poet, dancer, angel and prisoner converge with community to intervene against racial profiling and hate crimes. Narratives collide with music, poetry and politics to create a complex and layered experience. A collaboration between artist Anida Yoeu Ali and filmmaker Masahiro Sugano. Featured portraits represent real American Muslims in Chicago. All unite as people who refuse to end in violence.
