WHAT’S THE ROLE OF MUSIC IN THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM?
A discussion on the film Orchestra from the Land of Silence.
Orchestra from the Land of Silence will provide an insight into the lives of girls who are fighting in Afghanistan for their right to pursue music and their studies. Their work in Afghanistan, as well as their trip to Slovakia and the events that took place during the Pohoda festival, manifest the strength of the young women who are part of a women’s orchestra in a country where music has been banned for years. Following the world premiere at the One World Film Festival, we will discuss not only the position of women in Afghanistan and the fight for human rights through music and art, but also the motivation to fight for women’s rights even at the risk of endangering one’s own life.
GUESTS: Marzia, a young musician and the main character in the documentary film
Ahmad Sarmast, founder and leader of the first Afghan women’s orchestra Zohra
Lucia Kašová, director of the film Orchestra from the Land of Silence
Mozhdah Jamalzadah, an Afghan activist and singer who fled Afghanistan with her family as a child but later returned and now actively fights for women’s rights and freedom
MODERATOR: Frederika Halászová
