During Ramadan, Zubair attempts to connect with his culture through food content on social media ... he ultimately ends up getting schooled by his grandmother on how to prepare a traditional dish.
Leading up to and throughout Ramadan, we’ll feature interviews with the cast and crew of "Ramadan America" who brought the film to life.
The film will debut at the festival’s Muslim House, a recurring event that provides dedicated space for American Muslim voices at prestigious festivals.
The feature-length “Ramadan American” comprises five narrative short films written by American Muslim writers, featuring stories about the holidays Ramadan and Eid.
The Initiative, a partnership between the Islamic Scholarship Fund and Rifelion, was created to support up-and-coming American Muslim writers. Each winning team includes at least one person identifying as a Muslim. This year's theme was "stories about Ramadan or Eid."
