Afghanistan - Land of Endless War | DW Documentary


This film gives an understanding of Afghanistan's history and women's experiences and perspectives.

Six Afghan women share their hopes and memories that connect them to their country. The film depicts women’s suffering – but also their courage, and determination to control their fate. For two decades, women and girls in Afghanistan were able to envisage and live a life in which they could decide their fate, in a country that provided ample choices and chances for them. They wanted their country back, the country they once knew. With the Taliban’s swift coup to seize power in just a few weeks, the women’s dreams seem more unattainable than ever.
