The 8th Annual Boston Muslim Film Festival: These Birds Walk
April 2, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
THESE BIRDS WALK
About THESE BIRDS WALK
In Karachi, Pakistan, a runaway boy’s life hangs on one critical question: where is home? The streets, an orphanage, or with the family he fled in the first place? Simultaneously heart-wrenching and life-affirming, THESE BIRDS WALK documents the struggles of these wayward street children and the Samaritans looking out for them in this ethereal and inspirational story of resilience.
About the Boston Muslim Film Festival
The American Islamic Congress is hosting its 8th Annual Boston Muslim Film Festival from March 25th to April 11th. Our festival provides a fresh perspective into the complexity of the Muslim Community. Open dialogue on unspoken issues and tackling stereotypes surrounding the Muslim Identity is the aim for the series of films AIC has selected this year. The movies will address social issues such as American Muslim Identity, sexual harassment, Interfaith collaborations, revolutions, genocide, generation gaps, censorship, and many more—visually complementing the striking theme of this year’s film festival—“Contrast in Depth.”
FREE and Open to the Public | Light refreshments will be served
This event is organized in partnership with Harvard University’s Pakistani Student Association.
