Event description
American Women's Club of Berlin and KCRW Berlin are partnering to promote the Berlin premiere of Ascending Afghanistan: Rising Women.

About this Event

Join us for the Berlin premiere of Ascending Afghanistan: Rising Women. AWC Berlin and KCRW Berlin are partnering to promote two screenings of Ascend's documentary film at the Astor Film Lounge on September 25th.

This screening will be hosted by renowned journalist, Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson. Soraya will be joined by Ascend’s founder, Marina LeGree, for a Q & A session after the film.

The Matinee screening will begin at 4:45 PM with an edited version of the documentary for teens. The Evening screening will begin at 7:15 PM and is not reccomended for children under 13. Both screenings will include a Skype interaction with several of the young Afghan women participating in the program and a Q & A session with Marina and Soraya.

For those who wish to support Ascend at the VIP or Summit level, the Q & A session will be followed by a special sparkling wine reception where Soraya and Marina will be available for questions and conversation.

This event is a fundraiser for Ascend: Leadership Through Athletics, a registered 501(c)(3) charity in the United States. A VIP ticket will support an athlete for one month in the program.

“A film that reminds us how trivial our aspirations and achievements are. A film that humbles us. The jury unanimously agreed that this powerful film could not go unrecognized… it is a reminder of how far we still have to go in the journeyto make this a just and equal planet for all, and it casts a new light on the unexpected role mountain sports can play in those efforts.”

— Bruce Kirkby,Banff jury member

A VICE Impact production, the film follows Afghanistan's first female mountaineering team as they attempt their first ascent of a previously unclimbed peak in stunning Panjshir province, conquer the complex social boundaries of being a young woman in Kabul, and return home victoriously.
