I recently saw Cut from Different Cloth: Burqas and Beliefs, a documentary created by Cliff Orloff and Olga Shalygin. The film follows the journey of Serena, a 27-year-old dance teacher from California living in Afghanistan with Hasina, a 27-year-old doctor and feminist, and Hasina’s family. Cut from Different Cloth takes the viewer into the seldom seen world of Afghan women.
I cannot describe how powerful this film is and how important it is that everyone see it. This is a rare chance to see past the differences between us, to discover the lives that are hidden from us, to understand.
Please obtain a copy of this documentary and watch it, it’s life changing.
