What Tomorrow Brings: Work-in-Progress Screening

Wednesday Jun 17, 2015 7:30 PM This is a past program

What Tomorrow Brings is the story of the first all-girls' school in a remote Afghan village. The film traces the inter-connected stories of students, teachers, village elders, parents and tenacious school founder Razia Jan who teaches a nation, a community and the students themselves that girls also count. While the girls learn to read and write, their education goes far beyond the classroom to become lessons about tradition and time. They discover their school is the one place they can turn to understand the differences between the lives they were born into and the lives they dream of leading. Followed by an audience feedback session with director Beth Murphy. (2015, Dir. B. Murphy, 90 min.)
