VIRTUAL CINEMA | ​​A Girl From Mogadishu

Dir. Mary McGuckian | Ireland/Morocco/Belgium | 2019 | 113m

Winner of The Cinema for Peace Woman’s Empowerment’ Award Berlin Film Festival 2020

A Girl from Mogadishu is based on the testimony of Ifrah Ahmed. Fleeing war-torn Somalia in 2006, she is trafficked to Ireland where as an asylum-seeking refugee, she undergoes a traumatic medical examination which reveals the extent of her mutilation as a child. Traumatized by the memory, she turns her experiences into a force for good, emerging as one of the world’s most foremost global activists against Female Genital Mutilation.
‘Silence may be the rust on the razor that threatened to cut my throat, but it was not my tongue they cut.’
