DESERT FLOWER (Fleur Du Desert)

This movie was released in 2009 and not widely distributed in USA as much as it was in Europe but lately here in US its been getting quite a buzz.

The movie is based on autobiography of a Somalian nomad (Former Model Waris Dirie)circumcised at 3, sold in marriage at 13, fled from Africa a while later to become finally an American supermodel and is now at the age of 38, the UN spokeswoman against circumcision.

Liya Kebede stars as Waris Dirie to tell this autobiographical story.

If you havent watched this movie yet - I suggest you do, Its very good.

Watched the Trailer below

sometimes i forget how much struggle people in Somalia and Ethiopia have been through in the past and still go through now. Lets not forget them in our prayers especially Somalia who are still struggle worse now.

Excellent movie and I loved it just as much as I love the book. the girl who played Waris was really really good. Great casting. I was lucky to get hold of this a couple years ago, considering I never saw it released at any cinemas here.
