UCDVO Development Film Series

UCD, Monday 25th February 2019

The seventh UCDVO Development Film Series will take place over five consecutive Monday evenings, starting the 28th January – 25th February. The series includes 5 high quality feature documentary films on subjects relating to development and global justice issues. Each screening is followed by a guest speaker with an opportunity for discussion.

On Her Shoulders – Twenty-three-year-old Nadia Murad's life is a dizzying array of exhausting undertakings – from giving testimony before the UN to visiting refugee camps to soul-bearing media interviews, and one-on-one meetings with top government officials. With deep compassion and a formal precision and elegance that matches Nadia's calm and steely demeanour, filmmaker Alexandria Bombach follows this strong-willed young woman, who survived the 2014 genocide of the Yazidis in Northern Iraq and escaped the hands of ISIS to become a relentless beacon of hope for her people, even when at times she longs to lay aside this monumental burden and simply have an ordinary life.
