This summer young Muslim women and trans people came together to work on video shorts in a project called Making Noise! with filmaker Sidrah Laldin. The shorts will be shown at Profile This! event at the Art Gallery of Toronto on December 4th from 6 -8.
One of the classes was held at the National Film Board where the group participated in a stop motion animation workshop. This is the short video that they created during the workshop.
See you on Friday!
- AQSAzine www.aqsazine.com
- AQSAZINE is a grassroots zine open to 16-35 year old people who self-identify as Muslim. It is a creative avenue for us to express ourselves, share our experiences, and connect with others. In Arabic, "aqsa" implies the furthermost, as in reaching out to the furthest possible point. AQSAZINE aims to motivate the utmost resistance to violence in all its forms. 16-year-old Aqsa Parvez, who was murdered on December 10th, 2007, also inspires this zine. It is to honour her and other Muslims who experience and resist violence. We strive to work from a feminist, anti-oppressive framework.
