      �Fire Eyes� : a film on female genital mutilation from Somalia

      Synopsis: At thirteen she was subjected to female genital mutilation
      and spent the next twenty years recovering physically and emotionally
      from its cruel legacy.

      Somali filmmaker Soraya Mire' knows firsthand about the traditional
      African practice of female genital mutilation. Fire Eyes explores the
      socio-economic, psychological, and medical consequences of this
      ancient custom which effects 135 million women around the world. In
      this film several women who have been subjected to this "rite of
      passage" voice varying points of view on perpetuating the practice.
      While a few courageous women would spare their daughters this
      suffering, others fear their daughters would be unmarriageable.

      Director: Soraya Mire'
