Abstract:

Miss World is a competition known for glamorous girls and bikini modelling. But today there is an alternative version aimed at finding positive role models for women in the Muslim world - World Muslimah. This global pageant aims to promote modesty and Islamic values and attracts competitors from Iran, USA, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, and Nigeria. Britain's first entrant, Dina Torkia, is a 25-year-old fashion blogger and stylist from Cardiff with thousands of followers on her YouTube channel. This film follows her journey as she aspires to make it through from her online audition to the selection stages, and into the final in Jakarta in November 2014. With unique backstage access to the competition and the finalists from all over the world, Dina gets to the heart of what being young, Muslim, and female means in Britain and the rest of the world.
