On June 30th at 4 pm, the movie „Silent Scream“ will be shown at the Art House Cinema in central Bristol. The movie is the result of a project to raise awareness and change perceptions on FGM in immigrant communities in the UK and was researched, written, directed and edited by participating girls from Bristol.
„FGM continues to be practiced all over the UK, and Bristol has a sizeable community of people who practice FGM“, says Waris Dirie in support of the project. „It is great to see young girls actively trying to change the perception of FGM within their own communities, their own families. It is a very brave thing to do, and it is an extremely important thing to do in order to change not only our own life, but also the lives of our daughters! I hope many people will watch this movie in value the contribution of these brave girls to a much needed change within immigrant communities in the UK and all over Europe!“
