HBO is making a documentary, about the 2014 kidnapping of 276 girls from a school in Chibok, Nigeria by the militant group, Boko Haram.
It is titled Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped By Boko Haram.
Now, they have finally released a moving trailer for the documentary, giving us more insight into what we should expect.
Following the global social media campaign with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls, which involved global icons like Malala and Michelle Obama, there has been a lot of pressure on the Nigerian Government to get the girls back. It has been four years since these girls were kidnapped, and one year since 82 of them were released.
In this documentary, HBO tells the story of the girls’ time in captivity, following their lives over the past year.
The film also chronicles the young women’s experiences following their return, including reunions with family members, as well as the process of coming to terms with what happened to them.
The documentary will air on October 22 on HBO, and will be available to watch on all their on-demand streaming platforms.
Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped By Boko Haram was directed by Gemma Atwal and Karen Edwards,( also credited as producers) and executive produced by Fiona Stourton, Sam Bagnall and Nancy Abraham. The documentary is a co-production between BBC2 and ARTE France.
