16-06-2019 12:00:00 16-06-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York In Search… | 3:00 PM Director Beryl Magoko is embarking on a personal journey to courageously face her past, to accept and love herself and her own body. When Magoko learns of an opportunity for reconstructive surgery for the female genital mutilation she and her friends underwent as young girls, she has a growing community of women to consult, but ultimately, the decision is hers. Hosting frank and raw discussions with women — from friends and family in her rural birthplace in Kenya to new friends in cities around Europe — together they uncover the beauty of collective strength and insight, examine the importance of female pleasure and shed the societally imposed shame around women's bodies. Winner of the 2019 Human Rights Watch Film Festival Nestor Almendros award for courage in filmmaking. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=384816 Francesca Beale Theatre Francesca Beale Theatre
