Take One Action Film Festival present: Time for Ilhan Orange Box Gallery
14 September 2018
7.00 - 10.00pm

Ilhan Omar, a hijab-wearing mother of three, was a complete outsider to the political scene. In 2016, she became the first Somali Muslim woman to be elected for state office in America.

Frustrated by the increasing disconnect between her Minnesota community and the public officials who represent them, Ilhan decided to run for office as a state representative. Observing her life on the electoral trail with remarkable intimacy and access, this rousing documentary offers rare insight into this formidable newcomer’s journey as she takes on a 43-year incumbent and redefines the face of American politics.

Ilhan’s story offers a resolutely hopeful snapshot of the growing importance of women's role in politics and points to the possibility of a move towards a more diverse, dynamic and responsive political class.

BEYOND THE SCREEN:

Stay with us after the film as we explore the importance of female voices being heard at the centre of British politics and policy, with guests including Emma Ritch, Executive Director of Engender.

Tickets can be purchased here.
