LBCinematheque @ The Bungalow Screening Room - 737 Pine Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90813
Sunday, July 15th, 2012 – 1:30PM

Join PBS SoCaL and the Long Beach Cinematheque for a screening of POV: The Light In Her Eyes on Sunday, July 15 at 1:30 PM, followed by a Q&A with the local Los Angeles filmmakers Julia Meltzer and Laura Nix, at Long Beach’s newest space for cinematic exhibition, the Bungalow Screening Room.

Houda al-Habash, a conservative Muslim preacher, founded a Qur’an school for girls in Damascus, Syria, 30 years ago. Every summer, her female students immerse themselves in a rigorous study of Islam. A surprising cultural shift is underway — women are claiming space within the mosque. View an extraordinary portrait, filmed just before the uprising in Syria erupted, of a leader who challenges the women of her community to live according to Islam, without giving up their dreams.

Join us for this special opportunity to see The Light in Her Eyes in advance of its airing on PBS SoCaL Sunday July 22nd at 10:30 PM, and on PBS OC Friday July 20th at 9 PM. Find the PBS channels on your provider.
