Ascend Film Screening

September 25

AWC Berlin and KCRW Berlin invite you to a screening of Ascending Afghanistan: Women Rising. This award-winning documentary follows Afghanistan’s first female mountaineering team’s attempt to ascend a peak in the Panjshir province, conquer the complex social boundaries of being young women in Kabul, and return home victoriously.

Two screenings of Ascend’s inspiring film will take place at the beautiful Astor Film Lounge on September 25th. The events will be hosted by journalist, Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson. After the film, Soraya will be joined by Ascend’s founder, Marina LeGree, for a Q & A session with several Afghan women via Skype.

An optional VIP reception after the event includes sparkling wine, appetizers and access to Soraya and Marina. Food and drink can also be purchased prior to event.

This will be an absolutely unique experience and is open to the public. Proceeds go to benefit Ascend’s worthy program. Join us!
