TIME FOR ILHAN

Co-presented with the Boston Women’s Film Festival

 

On November 8, 2016, a young, hijab-wearing mother-of-three named Ilhan Omar made history, becoming the first Somali Muslim woman to be elected to state office in America and was hailed by the New York Times as, “one of the bright lights in the post-election darkness.” TIME FOR ILHAN intimately chronicles her hard-fought campaign and offers an inspiring, stereotype-busting portrait of a rising political star as she begins a bold and powerful political career. Winner of the Documentary Audience Award at the Provincetown Film Festival.

“The type of feel-good story we desperately need right now.” – The Hollywood Reporter
