Following a new generation of young Afghan women cyclists, AFGHAN CYCLES uses the bicycle to tell a story of women's rights - human rights - and the struggles faced by Afghan women on a daily basis, from discrimination to abuse, to the oppressive silencing of their voices in all aspects of contemporary society. These women ride despite cultural barriers, despite infrastructure, and despite death threats, embracing the power and freedom that comes with the sport. Winner of Best Documentary at the **Brooklyn Film Festival** and **Seattle International Film Festival**. *"It's a film which captures the current refugee crisis and all of the horrors that entails, whilst humanising those caught up in it." - Becky Kukla, **Film Inquiry***
