< SPECIAL EVENTS
Closing night of the 5th Annual Queens World Film Festival will feature a special screening of DUKHTAR (Daughter) by Afia Nathaniel. DUKHTAR is a gripping, beautiful and touching story, straight from today's headlines, about the practice of marrying young girls (sometimes before puberty) to much older men for tribal, political and/or economic reasons. In DUKHTAR, the girl’s mother steals away with her daughter on the eve of the impending marriage, and they both go on the run.
