Maryam is at the start of her legal career and explores her internal debate between justice, her commitment to the law of the land and her commitment to her Muslim faith.
This film was produced as part of the In One City project, a community cohesion, social dialogue and filmmaking project working across Leeds to increase dialogue between diverse communities; explore unique cultural identities and shared values; challenge myths and perceptions and develop strategies for a peaceful and cohesive city.
At the heart of the project is collaborative film production that sees people building and sharing their stories with experienced social filmmakers. The films produced are then used to start difficult conversations between citizens in schools and within wider community settings.
This film is part of a series of 12 short films exploring faith, spirituality and social action. The series explores how people in Leeds interpret a statement made Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks ‘Society is a conversation scored for many voices’.
