Muneeza in the Middle is a new Canadian documentary which will be premiering nationally on CBC's Documentary Channel on January 21st at 9pm. The documentary by Ottawa-based Egyptian Canadian Muslim filmmaker Hoda Elatawi, who is a producer with GAPC Entertainment in Ottawa, follows young Muslim Canadian mother Muneeza Sheikh over five years. I had an opportunity to meet both Hoda and Muneeza when the documentary premiered in Ottawa in early December 2014.
