Saving Face

Duration :

41

Summary: Disfigured by violence...scarred for life. For too many Pakistani women who have become the victims of acid attacks, their horrific physical scars are rivaled only by the emotional ones that never leave them--while their attackers get away with minimal punishment. The 2011 Oscar(R)-winner for Best Documentary-Short Subject, this film tells the stories of two survivors of these vicious attacks as well as of a renowned London plastic surgeon--Dr. Mohammad Jawad--who put his practice on hold to return to his home country to help these two women and other victims.
