A new film that challenges the meaning of the veil for Muslim women will have its first public screening at the University of East Anglia on October 2.

It comes amid continued controversy about veiling, most recently with calls for a national debate on wearing veils in public places.

The screening has been organised by Dr Eylem Atakav from UEA, who was a consultant on the film 'I wasn't always dressed like this', which was produced and directed by Betty Martins.

A second screening is due to take place at the P21 Gallery in London on October 3.
