The Day I Will Never Forget is a documentary about the practice of female genital mutilation in Kenya and the pioneering African women who are bravely reversing the tradition. In this film, the women speak candidly about the practice and explain its cultural significance within Kenyan society. From gripping testimonials by young women who share the painful aftermath of their trauma to interviews with elderly matriarchs who stubbornly stand behind the practice, Longinotto paints a complex portrait of the current polemics and conflicts that have allowed this procedure to exist well into modern times.
