Dir. Katie Mitchell, 2017
20min.

 

Katie Mitchell’s new documentary short is an intimate exploration of two women coming of age under the gaze of surveillance. Embracing their newfound freedom of college life, these two women make new friends when they join the Muslim Student Association. When a young woman joins their circle, they welcome her with open arms and she quickly becomes part of their lives both on and off campus. But as whispers of informants on campus turn into reported news of surveillance, the students are forced to question everyone around them. Who can they trust and who do they really know?

Panel with Albert Fox Cahn, legal director, CAIR New York; Aviva Stahl, investigative journalist; and Katie Mitchell, director. Moderated by Abraham Riesman, journalist.
