    An Act of Worship
    • Director: Nausheen Dadabhoy
    • Producers: Sofian Khan, Kristi Jacobson, Heba Elorbany

    AN ACT OF WORSHIP is Pakistani-American filmmaker Nausheen Dadabhoy’s exploration of the last 20 years of Muslim life in America. The feature-length documentary weaves together present-day vérité material of three women activists who came of age after 9/11 with archival footage, home videos and oral histories sourced from Muslim communities across the country. Guided by their personal experiences as Muslim Americans, the filmmaking team takes charge of the narrative of their community, which has thus far been defined by outsiders.
