The Women's Film Festival 2016: Dollface/Mariam
Dollface Runtime: 5 min

DOLLFACE tackles the web-like topic of the institution of marriage. Examining both the good and the bad, the film endeavors to explore everything from the societal, religious, and racial pressures surrounding the mystery of marriage to those that are self-inflicted, imagined, and even truly desired, through the characters of Dot and Max, a contemporary interracial couple faced with the curse of ultimate incompatibility.

Director, Layne Marie Williams will be in attendance for a Q&A session.

Mariam Runtime: 43 min

Its 2004 and France has passed a law banning religious symbols in public schools. Mariam, French-born with Arab parents, recently wore the hijab after performing the hajj with her grandmother. At the start of the academic year she pretends the law does not exist. She doesnt want to acknowledge it and be forced to make a decision. To complicate matters, a popular young Arab boy in school, Karim, starts paying attention to her and she develops a powerful crush on him       Veiled Muslim teenager Mariam must decide between taking off her hijab veil or getting expelled from school in 2004 France when a law is passed banning religious symbols from public schools, at the same time that a popular boy in school starts paying attention to her.
