BRAVE MISS WORLD
Weeks before winning the 1998 Miss World pageant, Israeli teen Linor Abargil was held captive and raped by her travel agent while heading home from an Italian modeling assignment. Ten years later, she resolved to confront her past and reach out to other rape survivors. In “Brave Miss World,” made over the course of five years, director Cecilia Peck shows her striking subject encouraging women around the world to speak out. Although this uplifting documentary would benefit from a clearer focus and more precise assembly, it has considerable appeal for the Jewish-interest community, as well as those concerned with rampant sexual violence.
Already a well-traveled fest item, the pic opens Nov. 15 at the Laemmle Theaters in La for a weeklong award-qualifying run. U.S. sales agent Cinetic is negotiating broadcast offers and in talks with a theatrical distributor for a wider release in 2014
