Desert Flower

Director: Sherry Hormann, UK, 120min, MA
In English and Somali with subtitles

This is the inspiring true story of Waris Dirie, an extraordinary, proud and brave woman whose bestselling biography Desert Flower touched the hearts of readers worldwide.

Born in the Somalian desert in 1965, Dirie rose from a poverty stricken nomadic life to the fashion catwalks of New York. Her amazing story saw her flee a forced marriage at 13 and escape to England, only to end up homeless and under threat of deportation. Discovered by star photographer Terry Donaldson, Waris rose to global fame, ultimately choosing to reveal a devastating childhood secret to the world.

Since becoming a United Nations Special Ambassador, Waris Dirie has dedicated her life to fighting the horrific practice of female circumcision. This fascinating and truly meaningful film is testament to her courageous spirit.
