Nigerian Film On Chibok Girls Wins Big At Venice Film Festival

Daughters of Chibok, a documentary by Nigerian film maker, Joel Kachi Benson, has clinched the 'Best Virtual Reality Story' award at the Venice Film Festival. The documentary tells the story of Yana Galang, whose daughter was among the 276 girls kidnapped in April 2014 from their school dormitory in Chibok, in north-east Nigeria.

The film Daughters of Chibok addresses the impact the kidnapping has had on the girls' family members, and aims to serve as a reminder to the global community on the need to rescue the remaining 112 schoolgirls still in the clutches of Boko Haram.
