Crimes of Honour

.

CRIMES OF HONOUR documents the terrible reality of femicide- the belief that a girl’s body is the property of the family, and any suggestion of sexual impropriety must be cleansed with her blood. This absorbing, heart-wrenching film introduces us to some of the women in hiding from their families, as well as a brother who describes his reasons for killing the sister he loved. Also profiled are a handful of women who have committed themselves to the protection of young women in danger of losing their lives. This film explains that honor killings have no basis in Islamic teachings, yet are disturbingly on the rise.

Running Time: 44 min.
Subject(s): Crime, Human Rights, Middle Eastern Studies, Politics, Sexuality, Society, Women
Language(s): English
Director(s):
Producer(s): Shelley Saywell

Press

  • A documentary with the cumulative emotional impact of great tragedy
    LOS ANGELES TIMES
  • As powerful and moving a documentary as you will ever see. A+
    PEOPLE
  • Slams through stereotypes... Slowly, carefully, powerfully, Common Threads takes the cold statistics and gives them very recognizable faces.
    THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • Powerful and poignant, this is a lump-in-your-throat documentary that never sacrifices intelligence to emotion and never sensationalizes.
    CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER
  • Simply stunning... a study in devotion and anger and courage at a dark time. And through it all, it's love that shines the brightest
    VARIETY
  • An uncommon labor of love, compassion and bravery.
    NEW YORK NEWSDAY
  • A great documentary.
    THE WASHINGTON POST
  • A powerful exploration of crimes in the name of Islamic family honor that reveals the destructive cultural undertow of a segment of the lower socio-economic classes in Jordan and the West Bank.... This stirring cultural snapshot on the eve of change is highly recommended as it will promote discussion in a variety of areas associated with Women's Studies and Cultural Studies, as well as Anthropology and Sociology.
