Crowned Best Documentary at the 27th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, THE MOSQUE IN MORGANTOWN is about a small university town in West Virginia that becomes the unlikely battleground for the soul of Islam in America when Asra Nomani fights for the right of women to pray alongside men in the local mosque. A thoughtful, even-handed documentary about a community struggling with change while trying to hold itself together.
