A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES: PEACEKEEPERS
US PREMIERE Academy Award winner Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy (Saving Face) teams with filmmaker Geeta Gandbhir to follow a group of Bangladeshi women police officers on a UN peacekeeping mission to Haiti. We come to feel the emotional toll of a risky and grueling year abroad. Muslim women are often kept at a distance in the Western media. This film offers a rare and up-close look as they make the best of a difficult situation.
