Facing the Dragon
Directed by Sedika Mojadidi
Afghanistan / 2018 / 80 mins
In this intimate documentary, filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi follows two compelling Afghan women, within the government and the media, through the pivotal period after the international withdrawal from Afghanistan. Through Sedikas perspective, we see Afghan women on the front lines struggling to maintain their hard-won rights in a country where lawlessness, political instability, and violence remains the standard way of life.
