MEDIHA (2023) DOC NYC 2023

 Moving autobiographical film made by a young girl who escaped from Isis and tries to reconnect with her family.

This is quietly powerful film that is going to knock your socks off. The power in the film is that the film is not flashy or showy but a film that is Mediha’s life. She is the one on screen talking to us and showing us her life.  While there are highs and lows the film is never overly dramatic, its simply life happening before our eyes and we are better for it.

There is little to say beyond that other than this is one of the best films and most haunting films at DOC NYC

See it and be haunted for days
