Nadia Murad is still in her early 20s, but she has led a remarkable, traumatic life. She survived the   2014 genocide of the Yazidis in Northern Iraq and escaped the horrors of being captured by ISIS. Principled and unbowed, she testifies to her experiences before the United Nations and becomes a beacon of hope for campaigners and a formidable human rights activist. Yet Alexandria Bombach’s powerful, unflinching film frequently reveals how uncomfortable Nadia is with the notoriety her role brings. A candid portrait of an unlikely, unassuming heroine, On Her Shoulders celebrates the profound dignity of its subject.
