Showing Shari’a law in a way we’ve never seen before–through the story of the first-ever female judge in Palestine’s religious courts–The Judge is a portrait of a remarkable woman and an eye-opening look at Middle East religious courts, including the Shari’a courts of Islam. Adjudicating domestic and family matters, they have traditionally banned women from serving as judges – until Kholoud Al-Faqih dared to challenge that history. Premiering Monday, November 19, 2018 (check local listings).
