Rise: Revolutionary Women Reenvisioning Afghanistan

Rise: Revolutionary Women Reenvisioning Afghanistan Movie Poster

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.
