About this submission

Wrap It Up sparks a larger conversation about identity and its relation with the choice of expression through clothing. It focuses on the representation of young Muslim girls and struggles they encounter in dealing with their Muslim identity, humanizing their personal stories. Critiquing the Orientalist narrative characterizing the hijab as a tool of oppression, the short film subverts this trope by reframing the choice of wearing the hijab as a tool of liberation from societal expectations and comments on dress codes in women’s sports.
