Facing The Dragon

As American forces and foreign aid leave Afghanistan, the country's fragile democracy and the recent gains for women hang in the balance. Trapped in the uncertainty are Nilofar, a member of parliament, and Shakila, a television journalist, who are forced to choose between motherhood and their personal devotion to reform in Afghanistan. Director Sedika Mojadidi has worked as a camera woman and producer for ABC News, A&E, Discovery and Human Rights Watch. Through her special insider access, we see the day to day realities of Afghan women on the front lines struggling to maintain the hard-won rights in a place where lawlessness, political instability, suicide bombs, and civil war are a way of life.
