WORLD PREMIERE A teenager from northern Iraq, Mediha is a member of the Yazidi ethnic and religious minority. She’s also the survivor of an ISIS-orchestrated genocide in 2014. Through video diaries, Mediha provides an intimate account of her grief and trauma. The portrait that emerges leaves us in awe of the budding activist, who has already lived many lives and is nowhere near done. – Bedatri D. Choudhury
The first and third screenings will be followed by a Q&A with director/producer/director of cinematography Hasan Oswald, producer Fahrinisa Campana, and participant/cinematographer Mediha Ibrahim Alhamad.
All in-person screening venues provide sound amplification headphones upon request with venue management. IFC Center can also provide a T-Coil loop for compatible devices.
