"Darja Does Darfur"

FYC: "Darja Does Darfur"  - Lars von Trier's downbeat pornographic comedy starring Scarlett Johanssen as a self-harming Danish nurse who goes to Darfur to witness unhappiness greater than her own, and hence be able to vicariously suffer more. After witnessing the destruction of a refugee camp by the Janjaweed and being abducted to be repeatedly raped as a sex slave, she is liberated by the  SLM/A and joins the female-circumcision ceremony of a local village, ecstatically performing autoclitoridectomy when rejected by the elders.
