FILM - A Girl from Mogadishu (Avant-Premiére)

With introduction by a representative of the Government of Ireland Circumcised at eight. Raped by wandering militiamen at twelve. Fully infibulated again at thirteen, and then married off to a fifty-year-old man who regularly beat her; Ifrah Ahmed runs away to a place she had once known as home in war torn Mogadishu to find it had become the kind of battleground now known as “Black Hawk Down.” Ifrah makes the extraordinary journey out of war-torn Somalia and arrives not in Minnesota, USA, as she had been led to believe, but Dublin, Ireland. Within months she is campaigning for better conditions for asylum — seekers arriving in Ireland. She quickly becomes a leading activist against gender-based violence and fights through her campaign work for the abandonment of FGM world-wide. The screening will be followed by a Q & A session with Ifrah Ahmed, founder of the Ifrah Foundation Drama/Somalia/English/112 minutes/2019 Director: Mary McGuckian Producer: Mary McGuckian, Adrian Politowski
