No Burqas Behind Bars
By Nima Sarvestani
PARIS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL ON HUMAN RIGHTS
AWARDED WITH THE SPECIAL MENTION OF THE JURY
"This film has been entirely shot in a women prison in Afghanistan. This exceptional and unprecedented access allow us to explore how « moral crimes » are used to control women in Afghanistan. Through the portraits of these women, whose only mistake was to follow their own path and sometimes their hearts, the film lets their voices, their distress, and their hopes be heard. All the inhabitants of the prison, the guardians, and the visitors, have their say. Their testimonies draw the contours of this closed world and of the destinies of the women who meet there."
