A favourite quote from the film:
“God has sent us to this world to explore our expression, to add to the beauty of this world, not to take away”
– Nahid Siddiqui
Spanish director Alba Sotorra Clua hitchhiked to Bosnia and through to Pakistan to film 5 extraordinary women talk about their occupations, aspirations and the rights and status of women in their Muslim countries. These self-portraits of hope, heroism and pride challenge conventional Western stereotypes about women in the Islamic world.
