A Girl from Mogadishu

Writer-director Mary Mc, Guckian’s powerful new film tells the inspiring true story of Ifrah Ahmed. A refugee from war-torn Somalia in 2006, Ifrah is trafficked to Ireland, where a medical exam reveals the extent of her genital mutilation as a child. Tormented by the memory, she becomes a leading international activist against gender-based violence and female genital mutilation.
