Alternative Cinema: No Burqas Behind Bars - Q&A
Q&A with filmmaker Rozette Ghadery via Zoom!
(2012, 72min, dir. Nima Sarvestani)
A feature-length cinematographic documentary that takes viewers inside an Afghan women’s prison. Through the prisoners’ stories the film shows how “moral crimes” are used to control the female life. Although the all-encompassing burqa normally masks Afghan women’s identity rendering them invisible, here in the prison, we see the power hidden underneath the burqa.
