Slam tells the story of Ricky, a young Arab Australian whose peaceful suburban life is turned on its head when his estranged sister, Ameena, disappears without trace. Ameena is a hijab-wearing politicised slam poet, unafraid to air her views on Australian society. Ricky is forced to revisit his internal conflicts over his own identity as he desperately begins to search for her. But when the media get hold of the story and insinuate she has fled to join ISIS, the family come under a barrage of scrutiny, fearing it could be true.
Starring Adam Bakri, Rachael Blake & Rebecca Breeds. Directed by Partho Sen-Gupta.
