PLAYING WITH FIRE
Anneta Papathanassiou | Afghanistan, Deutschland 2014 | 58 Min. | OmeU

Mit dem Fall des Taliban Regimes wurde das Theater in Afghanistan zu neuem Leben erweckt. Doch Konservative und Fundamentalisten bedrohen immer noch besonders Schauspielerinnen, ihr Umfeld und ihre Familien. Der Film beobachtet ihre Arbeit, schlüpft in die Träume dieser mutigen Frauen und teilt ihre täglichen Erfahrungen und Ängste. Durch ihre Zeugnisse sind wir am Puls des heutigen Theaters in Afghanistan und dessen Schwierigkeiten bestehen zu bleiben.
