holly and josh with falconsLocal film makers and journalists Holly and Josh Wallace spent two years living in Doha, Qatar – Josh as an Al Jazeera editor and cameraman and Holly as a journalist, conference organiser and filmmaker. While there, they made an independent short film about an Australian aerobics instructor who was living in Qatar as the fully veiled fourth wife of an Imam. Among Holly’s jobs was organising a women’s conference – where Muslim women spoke of the challenges of their lives and how to overcome them to succeed as individuals. Josh and Holly will speak about their experiences, their learning and show their film.
