A film based on the life of an anti-female genital mutilation (FGM) campaigner has premiered at the Dublin International Film Festival.

A Girl from Mogadishu tells the story of Ifrah Ahmed, who escaped the civil war in Somalia and arrived in Ireland in 2006 at the age of 17. She now advises the Somali government on how to combat FGM.

The film stars US actress Aja Naomi King and Academy Award-nominated Somali actor Barkhad Abdi.
