Still image from Covered Girls

Opens a window into the lives of a colorful and startling group of Muslim-American teenage girls in New York. Documents the daily experience of Kiren, who coaches her high school basketball team; Amnah, who has a black belt in karate; and Tavasha, who is cutting a CD of original rap songs. Their traditional clothing allows them to understand prejudices and to speak out about their faith, especially after 9/11, when people spat upon, pushed, and threatened them. Reveals typical teenagers suddenly caught in a tug-of-war between religious extremism and the American dream.
