HALAL GURLS


Featuring post-screening Q&A with Director/Creator/Writer Vonne Patiag + Cast Members Jessica Phoebe Hanna (Foufou), Hajer Al-Awsi (Fatty/Writer) and UC Brigante (Tarek) (February 28th only). The event will be hosted by Hawraa Kash, a renowned slam poet and Muslim advocate working with the Bankstown Poetry Slam.

Halal Gurls offers a candid look at three 20-something Hijabis living their best lives in Western Sydney as they navigate the culture clash between their faith and desire.

Mouna is a workaholic hijabi constantly caught between two worlds – the structured career-driven life she envisions for herself, and the chaotic mess of her personal life. To finally succeed, Mouna must learn to navigate an overbearing Mother, a pushy fiancée, a social-media addicted sister, gossiping packs of Hijabis and a ‘racist’ workplace to climb the corporate ladder – a seemingly impossible task.

Luckily, being a tough Muslim girl in Australia, she knows a thing or two about resilience and she tackles this cross-cultural balancing act head on.

Patrons will be greeted with non alcoholic drinks, tea / coffee and nibbles prior to the screening on Friday 28th February.
