About the Film
On an official visit to Italy prior to entering the Miss World Pageant, Linor Abargil was raped by a man who was supposed to be protecting her. Mere weeks later, Linor was crowned Miss World, her dream of wearing the crown clouded by the trauma of the violence she endured. Cecilia Peck’s BRAVE MISS WORLD follows Linor’s decision to speak out about her rape after ten years, and gives voice to her ongoing process of healing. Following her journey as she meets with other survivors around the world, Peck unveils the terrible truth of the global epidemic of sexual violence against women.
