HAYAT, 14min., Australia, Documentary
Directed by Rendah Haj
HAYAT documents the lives of Rahma, an Eritrean migrant and her four young children living in Melbourne, Australia.
The family begins to celebrate the month of Ramadan with their mother, who encourages her children to maintain a strong sense of family, faith and cultural identity. This inevitably is contrasted with the difficulties and disconnect she faces as a migrant and Muslim.
