Women in Afghanistan are in an acutely threatening situation. Particularly strong, independent, active women are under the surveillance of the Taliban and are persecuted and murdered by them. Sahraa Karimi is one of those women. She is the first and only woman in Afghanistan who has a phd in film, directing and screenwriting and has dared to make a film in the country she lives in.
