The Light in Her Eyes

Los Angeles Central Library, Mark Taper Auditorium

630 W. 5th St., Los Angeles, CA

7:15pm

Julia Meltzer and Laura Nix - Film screening and Q&A

Shot before the Syrian uprising of 2011, The Light in Her Eyes offers an extraordinary portrait of a leader who challenges the women of her community to live according to Islam without giving up their dreams. At the heart of the documentary is Houda al-Habash, a conservative Muslim preacher who founded a Qur’an school for girls in Damascus 30 years ago. The film captures the surprising cultural shift set in motion as these women claim their space within the historically male dominated mosque. Join local filmmakers Julia Meltzer and Laura Nix for a rare look into an alternative experience of contemporary Islam. Reservations recommended. Please visit website for reservation/standby policies.
