Global Initiative Film Series on Human Rights

Enemies of Happiness, the winner of the international premiere award is a powerful, remarkable and inspiring film. From its stunning opening, emerges a gripping story of opposition and women's rights in today's Afghanistan as the country tries to reconstruct life after the Taliban. At its heart, it's a portrait of Malalai Joya on the campaign trail in the first democratic elections in Afghanistan in 30 years. The film-makers follow this brave, fearless and committed female politician who, despite repeated assassination attempts, is prepared to take on and front-up to former warlords in the Loya Jirga about the way they have been tearing her country apart.

Followed by a discussion with Manav Sachdeva, Programme Officer, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
