Abstract:

In the low-income housing blocks of the Paris suburbs, many residents are Muslim immigrants from Sharia-dominated societies, and their children struggle to find a balance between traditional and Western attitudes. In October of 2002, a local teenager named Sohane was attacked and set on fire, soon dying from her injuries. Her killer's motive? Sohane had spurned his advances, breaking one of the community's unwritten rules - women have no right to their own choices and must be "submissive." With that tragedy as a starting point, this film examines issues of gender equality, human rights, religious freedom, and cultural assimilation in the context of Europe's rapidly growing Muslim populations. Viewers meet a wide range of young French Muslims, both male and female, with equally wide-ranging attitudes - but a thug-like superiority disguised as religious devotion reigns among the teenage men. The work of Ni Putes Ni Soumises ("Neither Whores nor Submissives"), a women's activist group formed in response to misogynist brutality, is also a major topic.
