Documentary


Using both regular and hidden cameras, members of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) documented the lives of Afghanis following the post-9/11, American-led military campaign. RAWA members interviewed refugees, victims of factional fighting and Taliban abuse, and residents who witnessed the bombings of civilian homes.

Rise is ultimately a call for gender equality, democracy, and freedom.
