Middlesex Community College will screen “The Light In Her Eyes,” the final installment in its 2012-13 International Film Series, at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 9, in MCC’s Lowell Federal Building Assembly Room. The program begins with light refreshments, and concludes with a post-screening discussion.

“The Light In Her Eyes” tells the story of Houda al-Habash, a conservative Muslim preacher, and the Qur’an school for girls she founded in Damascus 30 years ago. Every summer, her female students immerse themselves in a rigorous study of Islam. Filmed right before the uprising in Syria erupted, “The Light In Her Eyes” offers an extraordinary portrait of a leader who challenges the women of her community to live according to Islam, without giving up their dreams.
