Nadia is shown always surrounded by crowds, almost crushed by them. But her utter loneliness is heartbreaking.
"On Her Shoulders" is a moving, sensitive portrayal of a woman - and a people's - perseverance.
Its subject compels throughout.
Like its subject's life, Alexandria Bombach's On Her Shoulders is a sometimes wearying blur of formal meetings, press appearances and glad-handing encounters with well-meaning officials.
On Her Shoulders is an intimate, empathetic documentary, made with discretion and power.
We see this movie to learn who the young Nobel Peace Prize winner is, but in the end, it is about her challenging us to learn who we are.
s a filmmaker, [Alexandria] Bombach (Frame by Frame) treats her with respect, but stops short of full-fledged worship.
A good documentary about Nadia Murad.
As a huge supporters of not just women's rights, but "human rights, On Her Shoulders is a film that will strike a chord for everyone and encourage one to take action and no longer sit on the sidelines.
Showing [Nadia] engaged in wearying rounds of speeches and meetings in 2016, it could have told us more about the Yazidi people, but is memorable as a portrait of a burdened young soul.
Bombach illuminates the ongoing anguish of the exiled Yazidis and the toll taken on their primary spokesperson. Shortlisted for the 2019 Best Documentary Feature Oscar, this powerful film deserves a wide audience.
An engrossing and startling documentary on Yazidi advocate Nadia Murad.
