“The Light in Her Eyes” Co-Director Julia Meltzer

Shot right before the uprising in Syria erupted, The Light in Her Eyes offers an extraordinary portrait of a leader who challenges the women of her community to live according to Islam, without giving up their dreams. 

Co-director Julia Meltzer discusses how film can change perceptions, the relevance of her film given the recent news around Syria, and how as filmmakers, connecting with audiences in a deeper way is essential to their role as storytellers.
