Life Without Basketball

Regent Park Film Festival

Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir broke records and barriers on her way to become the first Division I athlete to play basketball while wearing hijab. When a controversial ruling ends her chances at playing professionally, she re-examines her faith and identity as a Muslim American.

Talkback with star Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir, moderated by writer and sports activist Shireen Ahmed after the screening.

There will be a free basketball workshop following the film, open to Regent Park youth ages 13-18. Pre-registration required.
