Coming Soon


Women vs. Warlords is a film series about three exceptional Afghan women who have risked or continue to risk their lives to bring literacy, education and gender equality to their country With this project we strive to amplify these women’s voices, increase their profiles internationally and attract support for their work.

"Inspired by Catherine Murphy’s beautiful film Maestra about the 1961 Cuban literacy campaign, I started exploring the connections between illiteracy, gender inequality and violence. From that exploration the idea for Women vs. Warlords emerged." DB
