“For one hour a day they electrocuted me – cables to my head, hands and feet,” says Sabreen, an Iraqi girl tortured by ISIS militants in front of her younger sister, Dilvian.

“I was crying and begging him to stop, but he wouldn’t listen,” says Dilvian.

In two powerful short films, Angelina Jolie captures a glimpse of the horror suffered by 2.1 million Iraqis forced from their homes at the hands of ISIS.

“They brought buses and packed them with young, beautiful girls," after her village was attacked says Amusha, a 58-year-old Yazidi woman in the second video. She believes her daughter was taken to Raqqa, ISIS’ capital, and sold as a sex slave.

Jolie made the films during her 2-day visit to Iraq as a UN special envoy last month. The films were shown yesterday at the opening of an academic center to combat the brutality faced by women in war zones at the London School of Economics, The Guardian reported.

As MRCTV reported at the time, Jolie said, "Nothing can prepare you for the horrific stories of these survivors of kidnap, abuse and exploitation and to see how they cannot all get the urgent help they need and deserve.”
