The spokesperson for the Islamic Women's Council says she's "deeply uncomfortable" at the idea of filmmakers profiting from the Christchurch mosque attacks. The New Zealand-born Andrew Niccol is to write and direct a film titled "They Are Us", which focuses on the week following the 2019 terror attacks. The film will feature Australian actress Rose Byrne cast as Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. Islamic Women's Council spokesperson Anjum Rahman speaks to Max Towle.
