Filmmaker Elizabeth Fernea passes at age 81

We were very saddened to learn that
Elizabeth "BJ" Fernea passed away on Tuesday at the age of 81. In addition to being a remarkable writer and filmmaker, we knew her to be kind and sincere.

Fernea was a renowned scholar of Middle Eastern Studies and her ground breaking work on women in Islam has been lauded in both academic and film circles

Our deepest sympathies go to her family.

For one week only! So don't miss your chance to see this beautifully constructed and contemplative film on a particle which is everywhere and ever present but rarely considered.
