Together with the Cologne based film network LaDOC, we invite you to the film & discussion event Afghanistan – Women’s Voices at the Cologne Filmhaus on December 5th. Filmmakers Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami, Sahraa Karimi and Sahra Mani are expected as guests.
The directors will use the two documentaries Sonita and A Thousand Girls Like Me to talk to filmmakers from Germany about the films and their current work situation.
The director and head of the Afghan Film Institute, Sahraa Karimi, will give an insight into the cinematic work of women in Afghanistan with a focus on the special conditions there.
