Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group, has acquired North American DVD and VOD rights to UNVEILED, the story of a Muslim woman’s quest for freedom of artistic expression. UNVEILED will be available to rent/own on DVD and digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms starting on June 13, 2023, through Freestyle Digital Media.
UNVEILED tells the story of a Muslim woman named Farash who is forced to wear a mandatory hijab in public while secretly unveiling her true self while taking an acting class. When her religious husband, Saeed, finds out that Farash is taking acting classes, she is forced to choose between her faith and passion. Her freedom of choice comes at a costly price as their daughter, Maryam, is torn apart between the two.
Written, directed, and produced by Mostafa Keshvari, the featured cast of UNVEILED includes Sara Omran (‘Farash’), Hani Mefti (‘Saeed’), Aya Ramadan (‘Maryam’) and Melanie Chevier (‘Elise’).
“I am honored to be working with Freestyle Media on UNVEILED to share this timely story on mandatory hijab and women’s freedom of choice,” said filmmaker Mostafa Keshvari. “The Women, Life, Freedom movement encouraged women across the world to fight for their freedom of choice. UNVEILED is a film that speaks to this issue at its core and goes beyond the veil to discover what it means to be a Muslim woman in modern times. With a majority Middle Eastern cast and crew, we have created an authentic experience for the viewer to dive deep into a Muslim woman’s world like never seen before.”
