The #BringBackOurGirls movement might have died down, but once upon a time, it was the hottest thing on the internet with people like Michelle Obama and Justin Timberlake using the hashtags.
HBO has released a documentary on what happened to the girls who were released. In the documentary, filmmakers were given exclusive access to the secret government safe house where the girls stayed after their release, but the girls are instructed, on film, not to share details of what happened in the forest, for fear they will be retargeted by the terrorist group and the other girls won’t be released.
Speaking with ELLE.com, the producer, Sasha Achilli explained that some girls has issues narrating their experience because of the emotional trauma and some attributed it in third person.
She also said they were very cautious while interviewing the girls because most of them were stigmatized in the society as being spies for terrorist group Book Haram.
Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped by Boko Haram debuted on HBO on October 22.
