Directed by Alexandria Bombach

United States 2018 96 mins.

Winner of the Directing Award for U.S. Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, Alexandria Bombach’s film captures the vital urgency of 23-year-old Nadia Murad, a human-rights activist from Iraq and a Yazidi, a Kurdish religious minority captured by ISIS in August 2014. Since escaping with her own life from sex slavery and witnessing the murder of her family in 2017, Nadia has emerged as the international voice for her people, tirelessly bringing the world notice of the tragedies they suffer. Nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize, she was named the first UN Goodwill Ambassador for Human Trafficking in September 2016.
