Film Screening: The Judge
November 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for a screening of The Judge presented in conjunction with Ummah, an exhibition in the ACME Lab exploring Islam and celebrating local voices. Then, stay for a Q&A with the film’s director Erika Cohn. This documentary film follows Kholoud Al-Faqih, the first woman judge appointed to the Middle East’s Shari’a (Islamic law) courts, as she fights for justice for women and offers rare insight into both Islamic law and gendered justice.
This event is free, but there is limited seating in the auditorium.
Please register for a ticket to ensure that you will have a seat.
Approx. run time: 1 hr 22 minutes
Presented in partnership with the University of Utah Tanner Center for Human Rights. Additional support provided by Utah Film Center.
