A Girl From Mogadishu (15)
Dir. Mary McGuckian, Ireland, 2020, 113 mins. Cast. Aja Naomi King, Martha Canga Antonio, Barkhad Abdi.
Fleeing war-torn Somalia in 2006, Ifrah Ahmed is trafficked to Ireland where a traumatic medical examination when seeking asylum reveals the extent of her mutilation as a child. Traumatized by the memory, she channels the experience into a force for change and emerges as a formidable campaigner against Female Genital Mutilation at the highest political echelons in Ireland, across Europe and finally back in the country of her birth, Somalia.
