The Day I Will Never Forget (2002)
Great Britain
90 minutes

Personal retellings and first hand experiences in Kenya’s Somali community offer a vivid exploration of the illegal, yet long-established, tradition of clitorodectomy and stitching (often called female circumcision). Shot objectively, with a non-critical eye, this study of religion, parental control and societal demands as a means to dominate a group of people stands as both testimony and cautionary tale.
