Women in Conflict

Shame

"Shame is part of the honor killing awareness-raising campaign in rural Sindh and southern Punjab. The directors take to the road, documenting shocking interviews that uncover a deep-rooted gender bias in rural Pakistan as well as the first ever footage of a karion jo qabristan, an unmarked graveyard where victims of honor killing are buried without any ritual."

No More Tears Sister: Anatomy of Hope and Betrayal

"A story of love, revolution and betrayal, No More Tears Sister explores the price of truth in times of war. Set during the violent ethnic conflict that has enveloped Sri Lanka over decades, the film recreates the courageous and vibrant life of renowned human rights activist Dr. Rajani Thiranagama. Mother, anatomy professor, author and symbol of hope, Thiranagama's commitment to truth and human rights led to her assassination at the age of 35.

My Daughter the Terrorist

"This fascinating documentary is an exceedingly rare, inside look at an organization that most of the world has blacklisted as a terrorist group. Made by the first foreign film crew to be given access to the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) of Sri Lanka, the film offers important insights into the recently re-ignited conflict in Sri Lanka.

No Man's Land: Women Frontline Journalists

"No Man's Land profiles members of a truly rare breed - women war correspondents.

Frontrunner: The Afghan Woman Who Surprised the World

Female Suicide Bombers

"A new kind of terrorist is on the rise: female suicide bombers. More difficult to spot than male terrorists, and more difficult to understand, these women are the new face of terror. From Russia to Sri Lanka to the Middle East, women are increasingly turning their bodies into bombs, blowing up markets, schools, and even jetliners.  Who are these women, and why are they dying to kill? Are they driven by different motives than men?
