Produced, directed, and written by Meena Nanja, View from a Grain of Sand is a journey through the last 30 years of Afghanistan’s history as lived by three Afghan women. Filmed over a three year period in Pakistan and Afghanistan, a doctor, teacher and social activist tell how their lives have been violently affected by wars of international making and three different regimes in Afghanistan. Yet through all their loss, and the destruction of their homes and country, these women have endured. With courage, conviction and hope they continue to work on improving the lives of the people around them, against all odds, in this brutalized and divided nation.

Sponsored by the Justice with Peace Task Force.
