The first review of PUNCTURED HOPE, by Andrea R. Garrison:
"Punctured Hope Sheds Light"
Punctured Hope, a Toronto Pictures release by Director Bruno Pischiutta
and Executive Producer Daria Trifu, takes place in Ghana. It is a true story
about Trokosi and a young girl's slavery in today's West Africa that includes
genital mutilation and sexual abuse.
Belinda Siamey who plays Edinam gives an incredible performance in this
heart wrenching true story that is simply done yet compelling and memorable.
There is something to be said for an incredible story and the beauty of
simplicity. Bruno has managed the art of taking a complex, subject and
presenting it tastefully, simply with sensitivity. The moon has a special
significance in terms of the luminance that it brings to the darkness
throughout the film.
Punctured Hope is an excellent film that sheds light on a topic that is
so often buried yet it continues. I highly recommend that you take the time to
see Punctured Hope and I promise that the end is worth waiting for. It is
moving and unforgettable.
