Dishonour

A five-year-old girl is caught in the middle of a struggle between her recently widowed father and his elderly aunt who disagree on how best to adapt to the customs and laws of their newly adopted home in the United Kingdom. The aunt’s failure to abandon ancient African tribal traditions, including the harmful practice of FGM or female genital mutilation, leads to potentially devastating consequences for the young girl. All six characters in the film are played by one remarkable female actor, Mimi Ndiweni.

Directed by Terrence Turner (Canada)
