Abstract:Subira is an 11 year old rebellious Muslim girl whose life is thrown into tumult after she comes of age and is expected to wear the veil. Raised in an orthodox Muslim community in the remote island of Lamu, Kenya, her tyrannical mother wants her to follow tradition, learn household chores and aim to be a good wife. Subira, however, wants to live by the same rules that apply to her younger brother. This multi-award winning family drama captures the paradox of modernity versus tradition.
