Directed by Jennifer Reeder | 2017

With Fawzia Mirza, Shabana Azmi, Sari Sanchez

Pakistani-American lawyer Zaynab (Mirza) juggles a demanding job, a budding romance with Latina bookstore owner Alma (Sanchez), and a newfound hobby: lucha libre wrestling. On top of all that, she’s adapting to living with her recently widowed, traditionalist Muslim mother (Indian superstar Shabana Azmi), to whom she’s not out of the closet. As Zaynab’s relationship with Alma grows more serious, she’s forced to reconcile her love for her girlfriend with her love for her mother. Set against the multicultural mosaic of Chicago’s immigrant communities, Signature Move is a tender, vividly realized look at falling in love from the perspective of queer women of color.
