No Burqas Behind Bars

“No Burqas Behind Bars”, by Nima Sarvestani

Screened on 26 November 18:30 at the Goethe Institute

Runtime: 77′

“In the Takhar Prison in Afghanistan, 40 women are serving time for ‘moral crimes’. Their sentences range up to 15 years for leaving abusive husbands, refusing to consent to arranged marriages, or falling in love with men that their families deem unsuitable. With unprecedented access to this rarely, if ever, seen world, director Sarvestani captures life in the raw. “

With special guest:

John Hendra – UN Women Deputy Executive Director for Policy and Programme
