I My Muslim

Documentary filmmakers Marjolein Busstra and Rebekka van Hartskamp are proud to present the premiere of their latest film I My Muslim at Melkweg Cinema on February 14th. Click for info and tickets.

The film was produced with the help of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts and co-producer Interakt. Marjolein and Rebekka previously produced the critically acclaimed Moroccan Mothers exhibition and documentary TV series.



Carla is a 62-year-old Dutch woman who has converted to Islam to marry a 33-year-old Libian freedom fighter. The film shows their daily routine in Amsterdam, and how political events in the Middle East effect their lives. Carla has a no-nonsense attitude towards the tensions surrounding Islam and the Muslim community in her own country. Eventhough Fouad seems to truly Carla, they seek a second younger wife to provide him with children. This will put their relationship to the test.
