SQIFF Closer
Signature Move

Sun 1 October 2017

Zaynab is a thirty-something Pakistani, Muslim, lesbian lawyer living in Chicago who begins a romance with Alma, a confident and vivacious Mexican- American woman. Zaynab’s recently widowed mother Parveen spends her days watching Pakistani TV dramas while searching for a potential husband for her daughter. Alma’s mother, Rosa, is a former professional Luchadora, which Zaynab finds fascinating as she has recently taken up lucha-style wrestling. Directed by the award-winning Jennifer Reeder and co-written by and starring Fawzia Mirza, Signature Move is a hilarious and honest look at a queer Muslim experience.
