Boonaa Mohammed: Neglected Voices4 years ago 4 years ago

HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:
Muslim youth are often at the forefront of international public debate, analysis, and scrutiny. What is often missing from these discourses are the voices of young Muslims themselves. Neglected Voices presents four short films about Muslim youth who are at risk of being marginalized, representing different ethnic groups that face divergent challenges in Canadian society. These short ‘point of view’ style films help young Muslims explain, in their own words, what it is like to be a Canadian growing up in the prevailing culture of Islamophobia and negative stereotypes. Boona Mohammed is a writer and performer.
Produced by the Tessellate Institute & Olive Tree Foundation, with the support of MENTORS; directed by Jawad Jafry.
