Selected for Moving Docs 2019: The Reformist

Sherin is opening one of Europe's first mosques run by female imams. The Mosque's members aim to confront and challenge the fear surrounding Islam and call for a new kind of it including a feminist agenda, effecting a break with established gender hierarchies. Sherin is impatient. She wants change and equality now! But her haste divides her organisation to the brink of collapse.
