Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan

"The Secret Marathon" Film Screening

Join us to watch this critically acclaimed fim about women's rights in Afghanistan.

The winner of audience awards at festivals in Edmonton and Sudbury, this inspirational documentary introduces viewers to an extraordinary group of women who are bringing change to Afghanistan one stride at a time. Filmmaker Kate McKenzie teams with legendary marathon runner Martin Parnell on a mission to enable and empower the Afghan women who risk it all in order to participate in a running competition whose route must be kept secret due to security concerns. The result is a testament to these competitors’ courage as well as an illuminating look at a country that contains many more stories besides the ones of hardship and conflict that dominate the news.

Special Guest: Colin Scheyen, Director of Photography
