Synopsis:  HEALING MAGDALENE is about female genital mutilation, a practice affecting 130 million girls and women predominantly in Eastern, Central and Western Africa but also extending to the Arabian Penninsula, Iraq, some occupied Palestinian territories, and certain immigrant communities in Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States. Magdalene, the Houston Hospice provider to writer-director Donna Valverde’s dying father alerted Valverde to the many currently living with the consequences of FGM. The Film’s maker emphasizes the gender equality that comes with global awareness and elimination of the practice.
