Banaz A Love Story (2012) Fuuse Films

A documentary about Banaz Mahmod, one of the thousands of victims of honor killings in muslim communities in the UK and worldwide, who was raped, tortured and finally murdered at age 20 by her own family.

Norwegian-born to muslim parents, film director and human rights defender Deeyah Khan and producer Darin Prndle, are presenting an excellent example of a completed and balanced testimonial documentary, interviewing witnesses from both muslim and non-muslim communities.

A great and qualified research that tries to bring into light these horrifying related to culture acts of vengeance, targeting mainly women who are believed to have brought dishonor upon their family.
