The veil is an object that tends to instigate profound and diverse feelings. Its practice and meaning have been greatly abused throughout history. Muslim women who are choosing to veil are part of a growing phenomena. Within the context of the West the question one might ask: “In a free country, why are women choosing to veil?”
In a very intimate and meditative mode, three Muslim women reflect upon issues of cultural memory, identity, self-censorship, feminism, politics and media. Giving to the veil a reflexive value, appreciating its experiential quality while excluding the popular discourse, this documentary presents the beauty and the complexities of the contemporary Muslim women who veils in the UK.
