“There’s a war in my home country again.” The opening lines of The Girl Who Saved My Life are spoken by filmmaker Hogir Hirori, who tells the story of leaving his pregnant wife in Sweden to travel to his homeland - Iraqi Kurdistan - and recount the fates of more than 1.4 million people fleeing ISIS. Through the people he meets, including a little girl named Souad who serves as his compass in the chaos of war, Hirori relates his own experiences with war and seeking refuge.
