Finding Nasseebi

A soul-searching filmmaker sets out to make a documentary about the United Arab Emirates’ Islamic hotline center, where scholars answer questions and guide people towards the right path according to the Quran. As a friendship blossoms with one of the scholars, the filmmaker’s relationship with a Muslim boyfriend makes her question her beliefs and the integrity of her film. This self-reflexive documentary follows one woman’s journey to understand Islam and to love, regardless of differences in faith.
