"Muslimah's Guide to Marriage":

Directed by Aminah Bakeer | 2016

 

With Ebony Perry, Kimberly Bailey, Vertina Love

 

Join us at the Thursday, March 21, 2019, 6:00-8:00 PM at the AMAS Film Festival for a screening of this award-winning Romantic-Comedy about Muslimah Mohammad (Ebony Perry) , a twenty-something African-American orthodox Muslim Woman who lives in Inglewood, CA. Muslimah has only seven days and fourteen hours left in her Iddah (Muslim separation) before she will officially be divorced from her husband. Knowing that the divorce would upset her religious father (Glenn Plummer) and the local Muslim community, Muslimah works diligently to try to fix her broken marriage before it is too late.

Winner of the Audience Award at the Pan African Film Festival, this smart, witty romantic comedy offers something all too rare onscreen: a brash, irreverent look at black Muslim life. A Q&A with Writer and Director: Aminah Bakeer Abdul Jabbaar will follow the screening.
