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

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 renowned 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.

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.

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.
