Afghan Cycles

Sponsored by Women’s Legacy Fund

From rural cycling clubs to a new National Cycling Team, a handful of women in Afghanistan are ushering in an exciting new era for a country slowly awakening to global influence and inevitable cultural change. Bravely challenging all the norms, these young women are breaking deep-seated gender taboos simply by learning to ride bicycles, to say nothing of the competitive world they are also entering. Sarah Menzie’s eye-opening and inspiring film beautifully documents the indomitable spirit of a small but powerful group of athletes who hope to make the journey easier for future generations. 90 min.
