In Search

Petite, elle pensait que toutes les filles étaient excisées. Maintenant, elle pose des questions sur la chirurgie génitale reconstructrice.

At 10, director Beryl Magoko suffered female genital mutilation (FGM). She now knows reconstructive surgery is a possibility, but she’s not sure whether it will help her feel better. Talking to other victims and reviewing her past, she will try to understand what happened.
Recalling her childhood in a rural village in Kenya, as a little girl Beryl Magoko thought it was a simple rite of passage to adult life and acceptance within her community, but no one warned her of the physical and emotional pain, nor the humiliation that this would entail in the future. In Search explores the director’s own emotional dilemmas and those of other women who have gone through the same experience.
