In honour of International Women's Day, Saïda Ouchaou-Ozarowski presents In Full Voice, a documentary offering an intimate perspective of the lives and journeys of six Muslim Canadian women.
Length: 52 mins
Language: English, with subtitles
Description: Muslim women are disconcerting, intriguing, polarizing - and straitjacketed by conflations of ideas in front-page stories. While the media tend to portray them as submissive and silenced, filmmaker Saïda Ouchaou-Ozarowski has chosen to distance herself from that caricature, with which she does not identify.
