Just a few minutes ago, Sharmeen was awarded the Oscar in the category Best Documentary – Short Subject for her documentary A Girl in the River. A Girl in the River is a story of an 18-year-old girl who is an honour killing attempt survivor.
Clad in long black dress, Sharmeen walked the red carpet along with her mother. “I have another one!” were the first words by Sharmeen as she went to the stage to accept her 2nd Oscar. The first she received was for Saving Face in 2012.
