Do Not Trust My Silence!

A film by Mubareka Sahar Fatrat (Afghanistan/2013/8:55).

This film explores the daily hardships that Afghan women face at the hands of men in their culture and society. The film aims to illuminate just how difficult it is to be a woman under the current circumstances in Afghanistan. 

I produced most of this film by allowing myself to be the main target of street harassment. I recorded it with a small flip camera. It was not easy to film men who harassed me or other women. Some of them threw small rocks towards us. I wanted to show how destructive harassment can be. We women are strong enough to fight against it and we have the power to stop it.
