Resisting in exile

Directed by : Amie Williams & Aeyliya Husain

Forced to flee their country after the Taliban take-over in 2021, three Afghan women leaders struggle to keep the world's attention on the unfolding crisis in Afghanistan, while coming to terms with what it means to have their power usurped and two decades of progress dismantled. From their distant exile-countries these four female leaders - past parliamentarians, ministers and journalists - watch the Taliban strip women and girls of the right to be educated, to work and to participate in society. No longer in positions of influence, they are forced to reinvent themselves to continue the fight for a free and just Afghanistan. When the world’s attention has turned to the next headline and even the greatest superpower has admitted defeat, can these women succeed?
