Compelling look at Honor Killings in the Immigrant Community
I found this film deeply moving and compelling. The filmmakers provide a context for the horrific practice of so-called honor killings within the Iraqui community in England (although it happens plenty of other places too, of course); the filmmakers provide a sense of why the crime persists without excusing the perpetrators. The victim's sister is spectacular; the victim herself "speaks" through taped statements she makes at the police department; and the officers who doggedly pursue Banaz's murderers are honest about police failures that might have contributed to the killing yet inspiring in their determination to solve the case.
I highly recommend this film.
