Punctured Hope Sheds Light

A Review by Andrea R. Garrison

Punctured Hope a Toronto Pictures release by Director Bruno Pischiutta and Executive Producer Daria Trifu takes place in Ghana. It is a true story about Trokosi and a young girl’s slavery in today’s West Africa that includes genital mutilation and sexual abuse. Belinda Siamey who plays Edinam gives an incredible performance in this heart wrenching true story that is simply done yet compelling and memorable. There is something to be said for an incredible story and the beauty of simplicity. Bruno has managed the art of taking a complex, subject and presenting it tastefully, simply with sensitivity. The moon has a special significance in terms of the luminance that it brings to the darkness throughout the film. Punctured Hope is an excellent film that sheds light on a topic that is so often buried yet it continues. I highly recommend that you take the time to see Punctured Hope and I promise that the end is worth waiting for. It is moving and unforgettable. Listen to my interview with Bruno and Daria to get the inside scoop on the making of Punctured Hope and the latest from Toronto Pictures. (c) 2009 all rights reserved.
