Film & discussion: What Tomorrow Brings

20 March 2015 to 21 March 2015


The Human Rights Watch Film Festival returns to London.  This year it includes the film What Tomorrow Brings, which follows one year in the life of the first all-girls school in a remote, conservative Afghan village. The film traces the inter-connected stories of those who bring the school to life: students, teachers, village elders, parents, and school founder Razia Jan. While the girls learn to read and write, their education goes far beyond the classroom to become lessons about tradition and time. They discover their school is the one place they can turn to understand the differences between the lives they were born into and the lives they dream of leading.

The film will be screened at both the Ritzt cinema in Brixton (Friday 20th) and the Curzon in Soho (Saturday 21st) and both screenings will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Beth Murphy and HRW's Senior Women’s Rights researcher Heather Barr.
