HS-03. Afghan Dreamers

Afghanistan, Feature Documentary, 2022, 72 min

An all-girls' robotics team in Afghanistan risks it all to prove that it can compete against anyone in the world, and demonstrates that Afghan girls can become scientists and engineers instead of teenage brides. Working in secret under Taliban rule, the high-school-aged team members struggle in the face of immense odds and ever present danger, and single-handedly begin to change perceptions in their entrenched Islamic culture. The film focuses on three team members – Fatemah, Somaya, and Lida – who become role models for the next generation. Subtitled.

Directed by David Greenwald
