I saw Three Veils at the San Francisco International Film Festival 2011. The theater was completely packed. There wasn't a seat open and the people waiting out in the street were turned away. It was a great crowd of film viewers and the film did not let us down. Three Veils examined the lives of three very interesting Muslim women trying to navigate the Cultural challenges in their lives. I found it to be an eye opening experience. There were so many moments of lightness and humor. I found this humor interesting because the issues that were being discussed are very much about the dark side of humanity. My congratulations to the filmmakers for creating a rich experience. This film gave me a better understanding of the lives of women in a culture I don't know.
