In The Name of Your Daughter Film Screening and Panel Discussion

In The Name Of Your Daughter comes to the Hot Docs Cinema June 13!

In The Name Of Your Daughter, Giselle Portenier's award-winning documentary that celebrates the bravest girls in the world, comes to the Hot Docs Cinema at 6:30 p.m. on June 13. 

It's a heart-warming and inspiring documentary about girls whose voices have never been heard, children who dare to stand up for their fundamental human rights and follow their dreams. 

See the Trailer on Youtube here.

This film tells the story of Tanzanian girls like 12-year-old Rosie Makore who had to make the most difficult choice a child should never have to make: submit to female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage, or risk her life and family and run away from home. And it's about Rhobi Samwelly, the indomitable human rights activist who confronts her community to protect the girls in her Safe House. 

The film has been called 'Powerful,' 'Moving,' and even 'Life-Changing' by audiences at film festivals around the world.  

The screening, a Women Deliver Satellite Event, will be followed by a panel discussion:  Female Genital Mutilation- Is it a Canadian issue too?
