Virginity is being made for women of Muslim faith in the Middle East who have become the sacrificial lambs of "honor killings"; those women whose voices have been choked behind thousands of years of oppression; the same voices, which do not have an echo loud enough to be heard across oceans and mountains. Those same women, who suffer at the hands of a false pride, an inflated bravado, and often die silent deaths buried by bribes and insufficient fines of a corrupt government. Those are the same women who need our voices now. Those are the same women for whom we make this film and who need our support now more than ever. Those women need films like Virginity to be made, so that they can fall in love without fear, so that they can experience the joys of womanhood without the terror of persecution. Virginity does not aim to single out at any particular culture or people; it poignantly and artistically draws attention to an antiquated epidemic of small-mindedness and control, which haunts the women of the world to this day. Honor killings, rape, prostitution and sexual trafficking are a few of the crises affecting the 3 leading characters at the heart of our film.
There will be a non-profit company born out of this film, which will aid Muslim women in this plight.
Film will shoot 6 weekends starting April 21st, but some crew will need to start working with us on pre-production as soon as possible.
