Description

On behalf of River Oaks Islamic Center and Indus Arts Council, we invite you to attend this screening followed by discussion over Rising Agaisnt Hate and a Q&A with movie director Mr. Atif Ali and Writer/Producer Mr. Shahid Iqbal.

Roxanne is a story of a young International student who comes to America to study political science. Ridding of her feudal family background, she changes her name from “Rokhsana” to “Roxanne,” and begins to assimilate in the modern passionate voices of reasoning. She has convictions, loves everyone, and stands for their rights. Justin is no exception when she falls in love. Except he’s the only son of a conservative senator from Texas. Life takes a decisive turn when one night, her hijab wearing Muslim roommate is assaulted on campus.
