Amnesty International Film Festival Presents PRISON SISTERS
Join us for a night that showcases human resiliency and learn about brutal reality that women face in the Afghan prison system.

The film takes us through the journey of two young women who have been released from prison in Afghanistan. Outside prison, the respite they experienced behind bars is replaced with death threats and violence. Sara’s uncle intends to kill her IN an attempt to reclaim his honor in their small village. Fearing for her life Sara escapes to Sweden where she applies for asylum but Najibeh stays behind. Meanwhile her prison-mate Najibeh disappears and soon Sara hears that she was stoned to death. Sara and the filmmaker want to find out the truth, only to encounter a maze of half- truths on the streets of Afghanistan. We follow the two main characters, revealing what happened to them – each with an exceptional fate depicting the horrific reality for women in Afghanistan.

More details to come!
