On Her Shoulders


An intimate, subtle documentary about a life-changing journey. Nadia Murad, a 23-year-old Yazidi, survived genocide and sexual slavery committed by ISIS. Bravely repeating her harrowing story to the world, this ordinary girl finds herself thrust onto the international stage as the voice of her people. Away from the podium, she must navigate bureaucracy, fame and people's good intentions, as she bears a new burden of renown and global attention.

On Her Shoulders has won festival awards across the world, including at Hot Docs, SXSW, Sundance, Hamburg and Dokufest.
