We're so excited to share "Americanish" with you this weekend! Created by diverse American Muslim women about American Muslim women, this feature from Iman Zawahryoffers a fresh take on the rom-com genre we all know and love. This dreamy love story is a perfect film for your entire family! 💘😍
"Welcome to America: Where dreams come true...ish. A break from the traditional romantic comedy, Americanish highlights different layers of womanhood as it intersects with cultural and societal expectations.In Jackson Heights, Queens, career-driven sisters Maryam and Sam and their newly-immigrated cousin Ameera must navigate the consistent and sometimes conflicting demands of romance, culture, work, and family. Serving both as a lighthearted reimagination of and critical divergence from the classic romantic comedy, AMERICANISH tackles and celebrates the complex intersectionalities of womanhood by welcoming us into the world—with all its joys and tribulations—of these three marriage-aged women."
Check out "Americanish" this Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Anchorage Museum! Tickets at link in bio. ❤️
