A Girl In The River: The Price Of Forgiveness
Directed By: Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy
Genre: Special
Duration: 0 hr 37 min

A young woman from the Punjab region of Pakistan was shot and left for dead by her father and uncle after marrying Qaiser, a man once promised to her by her family. Told through the lens of a true love story, the award-winning HBO documentary is a scathing examination of the contradictions between modernism and tradition within Pakistani society, as Saba struggles with pressures to “forgive” the relatives who tried to kill her – a pronouncement that would set them free. In this masterful work of high-risk journalistic storytelling, award-winning filmmakerSharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Saving Face) uncovers the complex and violent forces faced by women in Pakistan, particularly as it relates to human rights and family honor.
