As a huge supporters of not just women's rights, but "human rights, On Her Shoulders is a film that will strike a chord for everyone and encourage one to take action and no longer sit on the sidelines.
Bombach illuminates the ongoing anguish of the exiled Yazidis and the toll taken on their primary spokesperson. Shortlisted for the 2019 Best Documentary Feature Oscar, this powerful film deserves a wide audience.
