Alexandria Bombach's vital documentary focuses on Nadia Murad, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2018. Having survived the genocide of her Yazidi community and other atrocities committed by ISIS, Nadia escaped to Europe as a refugee. There, this ordinary but strong-willed girl finds herself thrust onto the international stage as the voice of her people. With and support from lawyer Amal Clooney and Murad Ismael, director of 'Yazda', she prepares to present her case at the UN public hearing. Intimate and insightful, 'On Her Shoulders' is a reminder of the importance of Human Rights in the modern world. ★★★★ "This arresting documentary critiques the limits to western compassion" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★ "A compassionate, level-headed portrait of a remarkable woman." - Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
