“New must see and fascinating documentary… Kimberley Motley is without question one of the most extraordinary people in the world today.” – Indiewire
JUST ANNOUNCED! KIMBERLEY MOTLEY WILL JOIN US FOR A Q&A VIA SKYPE FOLLOWING THE SCREENING ON FRIDAY 1ST APRIL AT 18:30.
Kimberley Motley is the only foreign lawyer, not to mention the only woman, working in Afghanistan’s corrupt, complicated legal system. Motley left her husband and three kids in the US as she tried to create a better future for her family. For over five years, human rights cases and troubled expats motivated her to stay, but time is running out.
“I grew up in a bad neighbourhood, and Kabul is just that; another bad neighbourhood.” – Kimberley Motley
Personal threats, including grenades thrown into her offices, and general conditions in the country are making it harder and harder for Kimberly to continue her work. With the imminent departure of international troops and attacks on foreigners becoming the norm she must decide if it’s worth the risk.
The screening on Friday 1st April at 18:30 will be followed by a Q&A via Skype with Kimberley Motley. Book now!
