The Agency for New Americans (ANA) hosts its Movie Night fund-raising event, April 2nd , 2015 at 7 pm at The Flicks!
PLAYING WITH FIRE
PLAYING WITH FIRE introduces us to six courageous Afghan women who share their passions for acting, dreams, and difficult realities. They include Sajida, a student targeted by extremists; Monirah, besieged co-founder of an innovative women’s theater troupe; Tahera, forced into exile because of award-winning work at a theater festival; Roya, whose TV career brings her constant harassment; and Leena and Breshna, unprotected by their stage and motion picture fame.
Filmmaker Anneta Papathanassiou exposes pervasive erosions of Afghan women’s rights. Her timely, eye-opening documentary perfectly captures art’s transformative power and the dangers these courageous women face to do the work they love.
The funds raised from this event directly address the needs of refugees, particularly women, as they attempt to rebuild their lives and gain independence and self-sufficiency in their new country.
Tickets are $12 each and are available at The Agency for New Americans, 1614 W. Jefferson St. Boise, ID 83702, https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=515adb or The Flicks Ticket Office.
So come. Have fun. Do good.
