Director Hassan Zee will be on hand to introduce and field questions about Night of Henna, the first Pakistani-American themed feature. Zee's first feature film is about the tradition-steeped wedding night of a Pakistani-American girl during which the predeterminations of society and her own heart are pitted against one another to decide her destiny.

Shot entirely on locations in San Francisco, the film explores Islam’s ideology to promote the independence of women. As Zee illustrates, the real problem lies in the gender-imbalance within cultural and societal traditions: "Culture is oriented toward men, and it has created differences and inequalities in lifestyles for women.”

Free admission, screens at 2pm & 7pm.
