A Thousand Girls Like Me
Director: Sahra Mani
Documentary, Afghanistan, 76 min.

When a 23-year-old Afghan woman, Khatera, confronts the will of her family and the traditions of her country to seek justice for years of sexual abuse from her father, she sheds light on the faulty Afghan judicial system and the women it rarely protects. One woman’s obstinate battle to make her voice heard demonstrates the power of action over fear, documented by an Afghan filmmaker.
