The Judge

Synopsis

Judge Kohloud is the first female judge to be appointed to a sharia court in the Middle East. Following her closely for several years the film shows the challenges she faces in a deeply patriarchal society. Yet we can also see her unbroken belief in the justice system and compassion for those she works with and for.

Followed by a discussion.
