Woman in Burka - A film by Jonathan Lisecki
A darkly comic look at the life of an actress and the types of Middle Eastern roles available to her in a post-9/11 culture. Sarita is up for the coveted role of an Iraqi rape victim’s ghost in a new film. No one's seen the script or knows whether it's a serious drama or a cheap horror movie, but everyone seems to think it's perfect for her. Will she be the "Woman in Burka"?
