Burka Song 2.0

Filmmaker Hanna Högstedt initially ventured to create a documentary that addressed the French ban on the wearing of complete veils in public. However, as things started going wrong during the making of the documentary, Högstedt discovered that she was making a completely different film altogether. What started as a film on the policing of burqas in France ended up becoming a reflection piece on how racism is discussed in the artistic sphere. Burka Songs 2.0 questions whose voice is heard and whose voice should be heard when it comes to the issue of race and racism.
