Based on the testimony of Ifrah Ahmed, who – having made the extraordinary journey to escape war-torn Somalia – emerged as one of the world’s foremost international activists against Gender Based Violence and Female Genital Mutilation.
"A Girl from Mogadishu is a film with a message that needs to be shouted from the rooftops."
"It’s certainly a remarkable story, one full of tragedy, adventure, suspense and even moments of joy, especially in the latter half when Ahmed finds a community of friends and allies willing to help her quest."
"A Girl from Mogadishu rings true with good intent and passion, as exemplified in the lead performance."
