Family of Woman Film Festival: Filmmaker Retrospective: “Motherland Afghanistan”

February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free to the public

Filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi returns to present her documentary, which was shown at the first Family of Woman Film Festival in 2008. In 2006, she accompanied her Obstetrican/Gynegologist father back to their homeland for the first time since their family fled when she was a child. Her father was appalled to find that women had little access to adequate health care and Mojadidi filmed his battle against one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. Mojadidi will also present clips from a film she has just completed in Afghanistan about the status of women today.
