Boxing For Freedom
BOXING FOR FREEDOM  West Coast premiere EDIT
2015, 74 min, Juan Antonio Moreno and Silvia Venegas, Spain (live action)

This documentary tells the story of a Safaf, a teenage girl growing up in wartime and facing intense gender discrimination, who deeply feels it is her destiny to become Afghanistans best boxer. Safaf and her sister joined the newly created women's boxing team after being refugees in Iran and returning to their own country. This film is a powerful true story of a girl who is not only the best female boxer in Afghanistan but the symbol of empowerment for a new generation of Afghan women.

NOTES TO PARENTS: In Dari with English subtitles. The film contains brief grainy footage of an execution of a woman by the Taliban at a stadium where Sadaf later trains to become a boxer. The scene provides important context for the story.
