A deeply moving and important 40 minute Oscar-winning documentary about acid attacks on women in Pakistan, the campaign for tougher legislation, facial surgery by an eminent surgeon and the dignified solidarity of the victims portrayed.
I pretty much cried through most of this. Acid attacks are so unbelievably barbaric, I can't even begin to imagine how hellish it is for the women who have to live through them.
I cried for 40 minutes. hard to watch.
Must see short.
Yaşananlar gerçekten çok üzücü, insanlık dışı. Ama maalesef ki bunlar bu filmi iyi yapmaya yetmiyor.
God, save these people
