Rights! Camera! Action! A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015)

In Pakistan, more than 1000 women perceived as having compromised the “honor” of their families are reported to be killed each year. Families are often pressured to forgive and absolve the aggressors, which allows them to return to the community. Told through the lens of a love story, this Oscar-nominated documentary examines the tensions between modernism and tradition in Pakistan. Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Oscar-winning Saving Face), the film follows Saba, a young Pakistani woman, who has survived her attempted honor killing by her own family.

This film screening is a part of the 2016-2017 Rights! Camera! Action! Film Series co-sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center@FHI, Duke University Libraries, and the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image.
