Lund screenng of Swedish documentary on women prisoners in Afghanistan

April 24, 2013 - 19:00

Maryam Ebrahimi, co-director and producer of the excellent Swedish documentary on life in an Afghanistan women’s prison, ”No Burqas Behind Bars” (Frihet bakom Galler), will take part in the screening of the film at Cinema Kino in Lund on Wednesday 24th April 2013, at 19.00.

The film, also made by Nima Sarvestani focuses on women’s situation in the prison, finding it is less horrifying than one could expect. The prison actually provides a secure zone away from violent husbands from whom they have run away (and for that crime they have received long prison terms). The film had its premiere at the 36th Göteborg International Film Festival, held in January.

After the screening, Maryam Ebrahimi will discuss the film with Anders Davidson from the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan in Lund.
