Banaz: An Honor Killing

Available on CuriosityStream, Prime Video
This film chronicles the brutal "honor" killing of Banaz Mahmod, a young British woman in suburban London in 2006. She was murdered and "disappeared" by her own Kurdish family, with the agreement and help of her own community. It was her relationship with Rahmat that put her life in danger. It was her video message, and her sister's testimony, that convicted her father and uncle of the murder.
