Mina Walking (A NETPAC Presentation)
(Afghanistan/ Canada/ Persian/ 2015/ 125 Mins)
Dir. Yosef Baraki
25th March | 11:00 AM
Synopsis: Though Afghan women are no longer prisoners in their homes after the ouster of the Taliban, the country’s destabilization after years of war has alienated impoverished women from education. For children like Mina this means the responsibility to work in order to support her family. Thus, she wanders Kabul’s streets selling cheap trinkets to feed her Alzheimer stricken grandfather and her heroin addicted father. But Mina wants to be normal so she secretly attends classes; a decision that sets in motion a chain of events that change her life forever.
