U.S. Muslim Film Contest: A Discussion

we-can_do_it.jpg What a great film!!!!! Very well made mashAllah…

I am really impressed with the script, the lighting, the actress and the director. They all did a great job mashAllah :))

Now, to the issues raised by the heroine of this film…. Haven’t we all been through those arguments before? How many of us can recall having those EXACT thoughts in our heads when contemplating wearing the hijab?

I am sure many of you are familiar with the term “cognitive dissonance”… One of the reviews announces this film to be “cognitive dissonance at its best” I must agree 🙂

Cognitive dissonance is a “psychological term describing the uncomfortable tension that may result from having two conflicting thoughts (cognition) at the same time or engaging in behavior that conflicts with one’s beliefs.” (Wikipedia)

Feels like only yesterday…

Proud of you sisters :))
