Three Veils


From trailblazing director Rolla Selbak, starring Sheetal Sheth (The World Unseen, I Can’t Think Straight), Mercedes Masöhn (Quarantine 2) and Syrian TV star Angela Zahra, comes a triptych tale of three women facing up to futures that clash with what they were brought up to expect and embrace.

Three Veils is the story of three young Muslim women whose lives unexpectedly intersect as they deal with issues of sexuality, tradition, and identity. To the outside world, they seem to be typical young college students dealing with the challenges of growing up and finding ones place in the world. But each girl has a story that, behind the veil, is brimming with desire.

“Ultimately, Three Veils is compelling because it really does offer fresh perspectives. Amira and Nikki are fascinating women, shaped by religious and cultural influences to a huge extent, and dealing with very complicated feelings in a confusing world. Amira is queer, and a truly devout Muslim – she takes her traditions to heart, and her feelings for Nikki quickly become a source of confusion for her.” AfterEllen
