YOU’RE MUSLIM? is about Najma’s upbringing, identity, and community. This story will be told from an honest, raw and reflective space. Archival footage will visualize the African American Muslim experience. Animation will be used to retell key moments in her childhood. And interviews with her parents will be conducted intimately while they move about their daily lives. Najma will be shown navigating the many worlds that she lives in, exposing the different ways in which she interacts, engages, and moves through this range of spaces.
