Every Picture Tells a Story - Jamila

Short documentary, 2004, 12 min.

Short documentary about Jamila, a Muslim girl who grew up in Holland and can play soccer very well. She always plays with a headscarf: during all practices and matches with her team, playing with boys on the street or by herself on the sidewalk, and in the park under her father's watchful eye. She explains that she and her father have a conflict. He does not want her to play with bare knees. The film shows where Jamila's different sides - as a soccer player and as an Islamic girl - are in agreement and where they clash.
