Sedika Mojadidi

Sedika Mojadidi will present her documentary, “Motherland Afghanistan”(Afghanistan, 1 hr. 14 min.), which was shown at the first Family of Woman Film Festival in 2008.  In 2006, Afghan-American filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi accompanied her Obstetrician/Gynecologist father back to their homeland for the first time since their family had fled when she was a child. Her father was appalled to find that women had little access to adequate health care and Mojadidi filmed his battle against one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world. Mojadidi will also present clips from a film she has just completed in Afghanistan about the status of women today. This film is suitable for high school students and older. The event is free and open to the public. Visit, PBS to learn more and watch the “Motherland Afghanistan” Movie Trailer.
