IN SEARCH...

Dir: Beryl Magoko
Germany / Kenya / 2018 / 90mins

As a young girl growing up in a rural village in Kenya, Beryl thought that all women in the world have to be circumcised by going through Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) at a young age; so she went through the ritual at a tender age as a rite of passage.

Little did she know about the effects of FGM/C.

Many years later, she learns about a new reconstructive surgery that promises to give back what was lost once.

In this engaging first-person film, Beryl Magoko explores the emotional dilemma by talking to other women who went through similar experiences.

Embarking on a series of frank discussions with other remarkable women, Magoko considers whether she should undergo the surgery, a journey into the unknown, with so much at stake.
