Film screening - Playing with Fire

Description
Join us for a screening of Playing with Fire: Women Actors of Afghanistan (2014) by Anneta Papathanassiou. We follow the stories of six Afghan women whose dream it is to act, an aspiration that is not only badly seen in Afghanistan, but also dangerous. Indeed, women in acting risk being beaten and even killed for being on stage, or aspiring to be. We learn more about these women’s ensuing battle against culture and tradition. One of the key themes explored in this documentary is the transformative power of art. An interactive discussion about the issues highlighted in the film will follow the screening.

Watch the trailer here.

Registration starts at 7pm.
