2017 SXSW – World Premiere

Signature Move is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable lesbian films of 2017, and is bound to become a hit in LGBT film festivals across the world. It will be shown in Israel shortly following its world premiere at SXSW.
Zaynab (played by scriptwriter Fawzia Mirza) is a Chicago lawyer of Muslim, Pakistani heritage. She becomes involved with Alma (Sari Sanchez), a proudly-out Mexican-American lesbian. Having recently moved to live with her daughter, Zaynab’s mother (veteran Indian actress Shabana Azmi in a wonderful role) spends her days watching Pakistani TV dramas and looking for a husband for her only daughter. Attempting to keep her new relationship a secret from her conservative mother, Zaynab takes up wrestling in order to unwind, leading to a sequence of hilarious comic episodes.
