Through Her Eyes was written and directed by Nadine Ibrahim, a young Nigerian filmmaker born in Kaduna and still based in northern Nigeria. For such a short film it is a stunningly powerful depiction, offering viewers an imaginative look at the life of a 12-year-old female suicide bomber. It tells the story of Azeeza, a young girl kidnapped from her village during a terrorist raid and trained to carry out a suicide attack. We see the world through her eyes, the people she encounters along the way to her destination, the other children she sees playing, and the conversation she has with the unknowing taxi driver carrying her to the place of the crime. Along the way, Azeeza flashes back to scenes from her own normal life before the kidnapping.
