This incredible film left a mark on my soul!
11 July 2016 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I had the privilege of seeing Woven at the LA Film Festival and left in AWE! What an incredibly touching movie filled with beautiful culture, complex characters and deep layers. At a time when the world can feel painfully divided, it's refreshing to know that a Christian and Muslim Director came together to create such a poignant film that left me inspired. There were so many beautiful messages WOVEN into the film that transcend ethnicity and religion. I left encouraged to listen to my inner voice, speak my truth and be present with my children. The film showed me that healing happens through forgiveness and connects us as human beings. We are all Woven. We are all one. It's a MUST SEE!!!
