About the event

Join us at the Cinematters: NY Social Justice Film Festival for a virtual screening of Americanish directed by Film Fatales member Iman Zawahry, followed by a panel discussion.

A twist on the traditional romantic comedy, Americanish highlights  layers of womanhood as intersecting with cultural expectations. In  Jackson Heights, Queens, two sisters and their newly-immigrated cousin  must navigate the demands of romance, culture, work, and family.

The  panel conversation will focus on issues of authentic authorship,  immigration, and identity, as well as ways that audience members can  take meaningful direct action both as members of impacted communities  and as allies. Speakers include the film’s director Iman Zawahry,  producer Roy Wol, actor Aizzah Fatima, and Dalia Fahmy from the Islamic  Scholarship Fund. Moderated by Ramy writer and producer Dr Maytha Alhassen.
