SHORT FILMS
TALKING HEADS (MUSLIM WOMEN)


Country: United Kingdom / India
Year: 2010
Duration: 27'
Direction: Fathima Nizaruddin
Writer: Fathima Nizaruddin
Cinematographer: Fathima Nizaruddin
Editor: Fathima Nizaruddin

International premiere

The film is a satirical response to the way mainstream media constructs the identity of Muslim women as homogenous “victims”. Through Z, the “friendly voice of God” narrator, the film looks at the filmmaker and her ‘documentary efforts’ with a fair amount of cynicism. The film reveals how the subjectivity of the filmmaker influences the film in such a way that the film is as much about its maker as it is about the subject.
