      Politics and Art in Cinema: Difficult Challenges, Determined Women
      OSAMA (Afghanistan, 2003)
      Wednesday, December 9
      6.00-8.00pm

      Filmed entirely in Afghanistan and featuring the citizens of Kabul, Osama is a story of a family comprised of three generations of women, after all the male family members have been killed in wars. The Taliban has ruled that women are unable to work or leave their homes without a male companion, so these women disguise the youngest, a 12-year-old girl, as a boy. Osama works to support the family, but events turn dark as she embarks upon a horrifying journey.
      Directed by Siddiq Barmak. Color. 88 minutes. Pashtu with English subtitles.
