Brave Miss World

Directed by: Cecilia Peck
92 Minutes, 2013

In 1998, recent Miss Israel winner Linor Abargil was abducted and raped at knife-point. Just seven weeks later, she was crowned Miss World. Brave Miss World follows this amazing young woman’s path to healing as she speaks to other survivors of sexual assault, confronts the possibility of her rapist’s parole, and gives voice to those who are too often silenced.
