Life Without Basketball


Life Without Basketball

Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir broke barriers in becoming the first Division I basketball player to play wearing hijab. When a ruling ends her chances at playing professionally, she re-examines her faith and identity as a Muslim American.

“The poignant documentary crosses the intersections of sport, faith, gender, and race. One that subtly uses basketball as a bridge to other important conversations.”

The Shadow League

“a touching portrait of one young woman’s courageous quest to make the world a better place.”

POV Magazine

“A look at the intersection of sports, faith and religion”

The Undefeated

“A beautiful portrait of a young woman, her beliefs, her cause and her family.”
