Peacekeepers Doc Follows Female Muslim Police Officers In Haiti

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers

A Journey Of A Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers

One of the most fascinating documentaries that aired at TIFF this year was A Journey Of A Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers, a film that followed three female Muslim police officers from Bangladesh as they did a year-long tour of duty on a United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti.

I spoke to director Geeta Gandbhir, executive producer Irfan Izhar and RCMP Sgt. J.J. Hainey about the ways in which these women defied preconceptions and performed their duties during their tour.

Read the full interview with them over at Samaritan Mag.
