AMWA Hosts Special Screening and Discussion of Afghan Dreamers

March 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Afghan Dreamers tells the improbable tale of the iconic Afghan Dreamers Girls Robotics Team from Herat.  The film tells the story of how the Dreamers defied conservative mores that prohibited them from studying STEM and the challenges they faced as Afghan girls daring to compete in robotics competitions. The team went on to win several awards in the U.S. and internationally.

The film has received critical acclaim internationally, awarded Best Human Rights Documentary at the Galway Film Fleagh, Runner Up for Best Documentary at Woodstock, and Official Selection at the Heartland and Boulder International Film Festivals.

AMWA was honored to host the team during their U.S. visit in 2018. Learn more from the articles below.
