On Her Shoulders

Posted May 5, 2019 at 9:26 am by

Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val, Win­ter Series, Best of Fest is pleased to present “On Her Shoul­ders” Tues­day May 7th at the Grange at 7:00 pm.

This is a film about the extreme courage of one woman, Nadia Murad, now a Nobel Peace Prize Winner.

Nadia Murad, a 23-year-old Yazi­di geno­cide and ISIS sex­u­al slav­ery sur­vivor, is deter­mined to tell her sto­ry. As her jour­ney leads down paths of advo­ca­cy and fame, she becomes the voice of her peo­ple and their best hope to spur the world to action.

On Her Shoul­ders is a com­pas­sion­ate, lev­el-head­ed por­trait of a remark­able woman. What it lacks in film­mak­ing fire­works, it makes up for in the sheer mag­net­ism and mox­ie of its hero.

Come and see this impor­tant film at the Grange May, 7th at 7pm.
