Sahraa Karimi: Hava, Maryam, Ayesha (AF/IR/FR,
2019, 86 min). Host: Angela Koch

Three Afghan women from different social backgrounds living in Kabul are faced with a major challenge. Hava, a traditional woman who is pregnant, lives with her in-laws. No one seems to care about her. Her only pleasure comes from talking to the baby in her belly. Maryam, an educated TV news reporter, is about to get a divorce from her unfaithful husband, but finds out she is pregnant. Ayesha, an 18-year-old girl, agrees to marry her cousin because she is pregnant, but the baby is from her boyfriend who disappeared upon hearing the news. Each of the women is confronted with dealing with the situation on her own for the first time.

Sahraa Karimi is a university lector, independent film director and screenwriter from Afghanistan. She belongs to second generation of Afghan refugees in Iran. When she was 17 years old, she immigrated to the Slovak Republic, where she lived until age of 28. On August 2012 she returned to Kabul, stablished her own Film Production Company Kapila Multimedia House to support Afghan independent filmmakers and artists.  Sahraa Karimi has received her PhD Degree in the field of Cinema (Fiction Film Directing & Screenwriting) from Academy of Music and Performing Arts, Film and TV Faculty in Bratislava, Slovakia (FTF-VSMU).

She is the first and only woman from Afghanistan, who has a PhD degree in the field of Cinema. She is also the only Afghan filmmaker, who is an active member of Slovak Film and TV Academy. She was forces to leave Afghanistan due to the sudden and unexpected fall of Kabul and the return of the Taliban to power. Currently she is a visiting-professor at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematographia (Rome National Film School) in Rome, Italy.
