The Terrorist

Out of darkness, some light.

A piercing look at a young woman who has volunteered to be a suicide bomber, this film — the best of 1997 according to The Coupeville Examiner — captures what can happen when desperation and anger drive life decisions.

Malli, who wants to avenge her brother’s death, is sure she is following the right path, only to be forced to confront head-on how her death would affect others.

Discovering she is pregnant, she has to balance revenge with hope for the future, as the clock ticks down to her appointed departure time.

A powerhouse of a film.
