Compelling

I saw this film last night at the Mill Valley Film Festival. Although it lacks the polish of a Hollywood film, it was compelling, dramatic and beautifully shot. I had thought I knew all about FGM, but I learned some things from the film. I hadn't known, for example, about economic aspects of FGM. The film uses the activist's testimony from her speeches and writings as a subtle background narration in a dramatization of her life. It follows her as she flees war-torn Somalia and escapes to Ireland, where she is granted asylum as a refugee. Later she returns to Somalia, and this is the most dramatic aspect of the film. Hundreds of millions of women have had FGM or are at risk. I hope this film is released nationally so that more people will gain an understanding of the issue.

Heart wrenching .. a must see

This movie is based on the true story of Irfah Ahmed, an Irish activist. She was a girl from Mogadishu, Somalia where she was born and spent her entire childhood in a refugee camp and had to face a horrifying procedure of *FGM* (Female Genital Mutilation as in Female circumcision) She was cut!!! She was only 15! She was then trafficked to Ireland and eventually was given a political asylum there and she then went to become the first international activists against gender-based violence.
