I agree that a title such as "Female Circumcision" should be enough of a
warning for those of us with common sense.
Common sense, however, is not all that common. Depending on your patrons, a
simple label stating "This program contains graphic scenes that viewers may
find disturbing" may be a prudent move on your part. I personally would
prefer to give certain people a heads up beforehand--rather than having to
deal with an irate patron after the fact.

my two cents worth,
