Scenes from the Documentary




The mainstream media would have us believe that the veil is always an imposition, an oppressive requirement of Islam.

Filmaker Farheen travels across the Muslim World to find out why some Muslim women take the veil while others don't.


This film reveals what no other work on this subject has done before.  It looks at the practice of covering from diverse perspectives in different Muslim societies.

This film took two years and six months to complete, and combines footage from Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and USA into a 50 minute work.
