Storyline

Israeli beauty queen Linor Abargil was abducted and raped in Milan, Italy two months before being crowned Miss World in 1998. Ten years later, she's ready to talk about it, and to encourage others to speak out. Now a globe-trotting victims' advocate, Linor encourages others to stand against sexual violence by putting an end to their silence. She travels to speak with teens in South Africa, where girls are statistically more likely to be raped than educated. For victims of sexual assault, the journey toward wholeness never ends; still, Linor Abargil, the BRAVE MISS WORLD, continues her unflinching efforts to keep the nightmares at bay.

Mighty Brave - tears and tissues
11 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

When I watched 'I am Brave' it was just new on netflix and I was doing some studying and thought i'll just watch this. Bad Idea. I was glued to my television screen as though it is sad in parts Linor's strength makes the documentary enjoyable. It is about Linor Abargil, a woman who was crowned Miss World back in 1998...only weeks after she was raped. However she got through that Miss world is a miracle to me - who has experienced abuse as a child - it just shows her strength and that she was never going to be a victim. In many ways it has given me strength for my personal journey now, just being able to see how this beautiful woman managed and helped women all over the world. Plus responding to emails etc. It makes you realise that rape and talking about it is still such a taboo - all subjects of that variety are. I am a survivor of child sexual abuse and no-one would ever be happy to bring that up in a conversation. Not details, but just the topic in general. I do just to get it out there make people more aware. There are parts that can make you angry and upset for Linor and other Rape victims but your will need to watch the documentary to see that.

How Cecelia Peck has made it so it is not just one big depressing documentary is amazing. She has managed to bring out Linors strength of character in every action she takes. I had honestly never heard of or taken much notice of who producers, writes or has a huge influence in all those important things until now, but I think she did an amazing job in every way. Thank you for sharing this story with us. And thank you Linor for sharing your story through Cecilia, and making me realise at a time I needed it to grab that strength I know I had and use and move on. So, a big thank you, many people will benefit greatly from your sharing.
