Pride Month: Al Nisa Screening with Filmmaker Red Summer
As part of a lineup of free community programming in celebration and support of Pride Month, join filmmaker Red Summer at the LINE DC for a special screening of Al Nisa, followed by a short filmmaker Q&A.
Al Nisa: Black Muslim Women in Atlanta’s Gay Mecca is the story of how filmmaker Red Summer brought five women together who sought to establish a community, where there was none, for Black Muslim Lesbians in Atlanta. The women in the film, who have the ability to be visible and vocal, have decided to do so for all the ones who cannot. They came together, in this film, to declare their existence, share their stories, start a critical discussion and set a foundation of communal existence for themselves.
This event is Sunday June 2, from 4:30pm – 6PM. The screening is free and open to all with RSVP.
