Sadaa E Zan
Sadaa e Zan (Voices of Women) is an intimate look at the contemporary challenges facing the women in Afghanistan. Shot entirely in Afghanistan in March 2002, Sadaa e Zan offers an astonishingly unsentimental view of post-Taliban life. The film is composed of testimonials from women and girls who describe firsthand what it was like to live in fear for over five years, stripped of all rights and denied any access to education or meaningful work. Despite the consequences, many engaged in daring efforts to provide medical care and underground schools for women and children. The film offers no easy answers, the future of Afghanistan is anything but clear, but it captures the resilient spirit of these women as they bravely emerge from the rubble of tyranny and oppression, determined to reach freedom.
