"Time for Ihan," directed by Norah Shapiro comes to Duluth at 3p.m. on Saturday, at Zinema 2. This Minnesota-made documentary film captures the journey to elected office for Ilhan Omar, the first Somali American elected to state office in the United States. Director Shapiro will be in attendance for a post showing Q&A and joins us here on Radio Gallery.

This week, Duluth welcomes film directors, writers and actors to town to celebrate the showing of their films at the Annual Duluth Superior Film Festival. With a focus on Minnesota-made films and local subjects, the festival brings Northland flavor to the screens in Duluth and points north. On Saturday, June 2, the festival has a deliberate Minnesota line-up at Zinema 2 spotlighting Minnesota directors, with some of the best independent films of the year including a selection of Regional Shorts, and full-length films; Risking Light, Silicone Soul and Time For Ilhan.
