Story Of BURQA… Premiere screening: MAY 10th

In the markets of Kabul, male buyers and sellers haggle over price and colour, while the women who bear the brunt of burqa are largely invisible. Even ten years after the savage reign of the Taliban was lifted, women are still covered in public places. But the Taliban weren’t the only ones to use the burqa for their own purposes. From Chinese importers, to Iranian politicians, to spy agents and suicide bombers, ”All have benefited from burqa,” says Brishkay. “The women under have always lost.” The reality of wearing a burqa becomes explicitly apparent when the director dons a pale blue version and attempts to navigate the complexities of stairs and city streets.
