Reviews
"SAJ is a short film that is sure to stimulate discussion about what it means to be an American Muslim woman in the post–September 11 environment. As the principal narrator, Saj is filmed primarily outdoors in New York City. In brief segments she addresses a range of issues, starting with a comparison of her experiences as a Muslim in Jamaica versus the United States. SAJ features an articulate and self-reflective young woman in a contemporary urban setting who is finding her own way in the world."
- Jasamin Rostam-Kolayi, Films for the Feminist Clasroom
