Screening: Boxing For Freedom + Q&A

Boxing for freedom in Afghanistan

Sadaf Rahimi is the most accomplished female boxer in Afghanistan and well known within her community in Kabul, though her talent for the sport attracts social ridicule as well as fame. Sadaf’s boxing and academic achievements have led her into public visibility and turned her into a role model for many Afghan young women – although her athletic career has been jeopardised by death threats and interference from the Afghan Boxing Association, which barred her from travelling to compete in the 2012 London Olympics. Runtime: 1 hour 15 minutes. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with directors Juan Antonio Moreno Amador and Silvia Venegas.
