STOLEN DAUGHTERS: KIDNAPPED BY BOKO HARAM

Co-presented with IFFBoston

In 2014, 276 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped from a school in Chibok, Northern Nigeria, and hidden in the vast Sambisa forest for three years by Boko Haram, a violent Islamic insurgent movement. Granted exclusive access to the 82 girls who were freed last year and taken to a secret government safe house in the capitol of Abuja, STOLEN DAUGHTERS reveals how the young women are adapting to life after their traumatic imprisonment and how the Nigerian government is handling their reentry into society.
