About In the Name of Honor


In the Name of Honor exposes frightening cases of honor killings from India, Jordan and Palestine. Hindu, Muslim and Christian families all share the tragic experiences that wrecked their lives. Does a father regret killing his daughter? Why is the woman who survived 18 gunshots put in prison? Are the parents seeking justice for the death of their son? During part verité, part exposé road trip, director Pawel Gula proves there is no honor in killing. The film juxtaposes horrific news footage with insights from the families of victims whose lives have been irreparably altered and the killers who are still debating the consequences of their actions. Broader commentary is given by officials and activists fighting this horrific tradition.
