Director Susan Youssef in attendance. Youssef graduated from University of Texas at Austin’s RTF program, and was a recipient of several AFS Grants prior to making this film.

Marjoun is creating her own identity as a Muslim American teenager in Little Rock, Arkansas. Poignantly, she attends the infamous high school which served as a powerful symbol of school desegregation in 1957. With her punked-up, safety-pin-laden hijab dancing in the wind, Marjoun roars into Southern consciousness on her motorcycle.
