What Tomorrow Brings

Friday 18 November 2016, 4.00pm
Bertha DocHouse, Curzon Bloomsbury WC1N 1AW

Dir: Beth Murphy
Afghanistan / United States / 2015 / 90mins

Part of our The Lives of Others Season, bringing you tales from the four corners of the earth.

A year in the life of the first all-girls school in a remote, conservative Afghan village.

Never before have fathers here allowed their daughters to be educated, and they aren’t sure they even want to now. From the school’s beginnings in 2009 to its first graduation in 2015, the film traces the interconnected stories of students, teachers, village elders, parents, and school founder Razia Jan.

The girls discover school is the one place they can turn to understand the differences between the lives they were born into and the lives they dream of leading.

To book please go the the Bertha DocHouse website.
