Join Council of Ex Muslims for a UK film screening of “No Longer Without You”
‘I will not do what you say. I’ll follow my own path, but I will not let myself be cast out. I will be different, but No Longer Without You.’
“No Longer Without You” is a documentary about a searing conversation about parenthood, tradition, religion, sex, and independence between a free-spirited daughter, Nazmiye Oral and her traditional Muslim mother, Havva in the intimate circle of a living room in front of their family following several public performances.
“How can I walk away when my legs are not my own? And how do I pave my path back? Because my place within the family is my right.”
The film screening will be followed by poetry by Playwright and Poet Mwhamadu Kuusi and a panel discussion on Apostasy, Shunning and Survival with Actress Nazmiye Oral, Youtuber Fay Rahman, Journalist Khadija Khan, Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain Spokesperson Sadia Hameed and Clinical Psychologist Savin Bapir-Tardy. Chair: CEMB Spokesperson Maryam Namazie. The event will be MCed by Nahla Mahmoud.
