On February 17, 2005 the Journal Sentinel reported, "Qudsia Sethi and Allyson Bahr are working together on an independent film inspired by Sethi's childhood. If their dream comes true, someday the film could be shown at the Oriental Theatre... The story is fiction but is inspired by [Sethi's] own experiences as the daughter of a Pakistani father who married an American convert to Islam, and those of several friends. She plans to call the film 'Rite of Expression'... With a preliminary script complete, some funds raised and a second public event to promote the film planned for Sunday, Sethi is like many budding filmmakers in Milwaukee, straddling the line between an intangible dream and the tangible reality."
