BRAVE MISS WORLD
NYC PREMIERE Linor Abargil is an Israeli beauty contestant who won Miss World. But she was also the victim of a violent stabbing and rape. Director Cecilia Peck (who made Shut Up and Sing with Barbara Kopple) follows Abargil as she speaks out about rape around the world. When her rapist comes up for parole, her stability is shattered and she hunts down his previous victims to convince the parole board to keep him behind bars.
