Blossoms of Silence: A Short Movie

Each year, approximately 5,000 men and women worldwide die as a result of "honor killings," when someone is murdered by a family or clan member for allegedly bringing dishonor to the family. The overwhelming majority of victims are women.

In Jordan, murder is punishable by death, but in the case of honor killings, a court frequently commutes or reduces sentences, particularly if the victim's family urges leniency. Between 15 and 20 women are murdered each year in Jordan as honor killings. The Jordanian parliament has refused to reform the penal code to ensure harsher penalties for honor killings or honor crimes.

FEKRA (meaning "idea") is a group of Jordanian youth who have banded together to create short films about social issues. Blossoms of Silence is FEKRA's second film.

 

de Votre Exposition:

We should always take time to reflect and think about what was and what will be. It's crucial that we revisit our memories because they have made us who we are today. And even though we eventually have to let go of everything--the bitter and the sweet--we must recognize that there are some things that are worth remembering.

"The Autumn Visitor" is a personal reflection on the future. It is an invitation for everyone to learn to let go and move on, while still cherishing those dear memories.
