Women in art and literature

Brazilian Skater Drama 'My Name Is Baghdad' Wins Generation 14plus Section in Berlin Film Festival


Discover the official trailer of 'My Name Is Baghdad', a film by Caru Alves de Souza.

"My Name is Baghdad is a bright, authentic, and unapologetic exploration of femininity, coming of age, and life as a woman in a place and time where gender-based violence and sexism is prevalent. Baghdad’s story is one of strength, sisterhood, and love — and pushes all of us to look at the ways we support the women in our lives, young and old." - Julia Yoo, TIFF Next Wave Committee
