Film Screening: "The Judge"
IRIS' 2018 International Film Series
Saturday, November 17, 2018
Threshold, 2717 Atwood Avenue, Madison
With unparalleled access to the courts, THE JUDGE presents an unfolding vérité legal drama, with rare insight into both Islamic law and gendered justice. In the process, the film illuminates some of the universal conflicts in the domestic life of Palestine—custody of children, divorce, abuse—while offering an unvarnished look at life for women and Shari’a. Q&A w/ the co-founder of Muslim Women United for Peace and and an Associate Professor of Middle Eastern History at UW Whitewater.
