FREE TO RUN, 31min., USA
Directed by Carrie Highman, Tim Highman
After completing the TOR330 race four times, Stephanie Case’s next goal in sight was the TOR450, all while working behind the scenes to organize an all-women expedition in Afghanistan with Free to Run. These women include Zeinab and Zahra, who represent not only Free to Run’s ethos but the spirit of many other women in Afghanistan who believe in education and progress. Captured by the lenses of Dream Lens Media, this is a truly unique moment in history documenting Stephanie’s unshakeable strength and incredible belief in the power of the women around her.
We have been pouring our hearts and souls into this film project for a number of years now. We are incredibly passionate about doing what we can, through our film work, to amplify the voices of Afghan women who are experiencing a horrific attack on their basic human rights. We are nearing the one year anniversary of the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban and women have almost completely been erased from public life. As Zahra in our film says, "now is the time Afghanistan needs NGO's and needs the world to listen to them." We are passionate about reaching as many people as possible with the message of this film and standing with the women of Afghanistan.
