Ma fille Nora, which translates to ‘My daughter Nora’ in English is a short but captivating film.
Nora, Samira’s daughter, left for Syria in May 2013. Since then, her mother leaves no stone unturned in her attempt to bring her home. My Daughter Nora, is a letter that Samira wrote to Nora. It narrates her fight to prevent other youths from leaving, her trip to the Syrian border and her painful, everyday life torn between hope and the fear of losing her daughter in the war in Syria.
Food For Thought…
I very much enjoyed this moving documentary as it gets the story across very efficiently. It shows both sides of the coin: the realties faced by families of those who join the Jihad and also the reality faced by the individuals who have left.
At the end of the documentary, I was left with some burning questions.
If you want to watch the documentary then please come back to read the questions I am about to write.
Did Samira get her daughter back?
How was Nora able to communicate?
