Facing the Dragon

Fri 27 September @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

- £4.50 – £10.50

Afghan-American filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi crafts an intimate portrait of two awe-inspiring women: Nilofar, a member of parliament, and Shakila, a television journalist. With recent gains for women and the country’s fragile democracy hanging in the balance, Facing the Dragon pays tribute to its protagonists’ determination to change their country from within – and to the energy women the world over are pouring into addressing power imbalance.

BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us after the film to explore the space being carved for women’s voices, especially in the political and media arenas, and how life continues in these fragile contexts. We will
be joined by guests including a representative from Mercy Corps and Alys Mumford (Communications and Engagement Manager, Engender).

Presented in association with Christian Aid, Engender and Mercy Corps.

Sedika Mojadidi | USA/Afghanistan/Australia/Germany | 2018 | 80 min | Afghan Persian with English subtitles
