A Light in her Eyes is a an extraordinary POV documentary of Houda al-Habash in Damascus, Syria, who owns and runs a religious school. She preaches the Koran with an authentic love for God and supervises her teachers to help the girls memorize the Koran with that same love. This is an illuminating and uplifting essay of one woman who is teaching girls the necessity of being knowledgable about the Koran to protect their right to live autonomous lives.

For all of us who may not know the importance of the hijab to Muslim women, this film also provides insight.
