Women Who Make Movies: Voices of Afghan Women

About this event

In the midst of the political tumult and fear for women’s lives and rights, it’s important for all of us to know more about the country and the lives of Afghan women — to see their struggles as well as their incredible triumphs over the last 20 years. The films in this collection demonstrate what Afghan woman have accomplished in a generation. This context is important as we contemplate how to support women in Afghanistan moving forward.

Afghanistan Unveiled

A film by Brigitte Brault & Aina Women Filming Group

Afghanistan | 2003 | 52 minutes | French 

Filmed by the first ever team of women video journalists trained in Afghanistan, this rare and uncompromising film explores the effects of the Taliban’s repressive rule and recent U.S.-sponsored bombing campaign on Afghani women. None of the fourteen journalist trainees had ever traveled outside Kabul. Except for one, none had been able to study or pursue careers while the Taliban controlled their country.

Film starts promptly at 19h30.

After the screening, you are invited to join us for a debate with Christopher Schwartz.

Christopher is a professional journalist and academic, focusing on the role and power of the media, and post-Soviet society throughout Central Asia.

Originally from the United States of America, he has Master’s degrees in Islamic history and philosophy, and is currently finishing his Phd at the Hoger Instituut voor Wijsbegeerte of KU Leuven. Christopher is currently the Chief Research Editor at OSCE Academy in Bishkek, and was formerly editor-in-chief of NewEurasia Citizen Media.

This event is hosted by The Nine Equality Initiative, as part of our commitment to raising funds and awareness of gender inequality worldwide.
