No Burqas behind Bars

Director : Nima Sarvestani


This feature-length cinematographic documentary was entirely shot inside one of the world’s most restricted environments : the Takhar Prison, a no-burqa detention centre where forty women and thirty-four children are rotting in four cells. Unprecedented access to the lives and stories of the Afghani women prisoners enabled the director to explore how “moral crimes” are used to control women in post-Taliban Afghanistan.
