We Are All Responsible
The religion of Islam attaches great importance and value to the issue of Hijab (Islamic Veil). Donning Hijab is mandatory for women in Islam and the teachings of the monotheistic religion introduce Hijab as part of the decency and modesty in interaction between members of the opposite sex. In fact, Hijab is not only for women. Believing men, according to the holy Quran, should also observe Hijab of eyes and cast their glances downwards whenever there is a possibility of temptation. “We Are All Responsible” is a stop-motion animated short film about a security guard who asks a university girl student to observe her full Hijab. The young woman gets offended and decides to raise the issue with her instructor. The film shows her teacher convincing the young woman that the Hijab is not an individual issue but social. It stresses that faith and modesty are closely intertwined and will never come apart.
