“Playing with Fire” is a documentary about the actresses in Afghanistan who are courageous enough to be involved with theatre arts and find themselves facing harsh criticism, social disapproval and even threats about their lives and the lives of their families. Acting has even caused a girl’s death in Kabul and many young actresses have been forced to flee the country. Anneta Papathanassiou, actress and director from Greece, visits Kabul to teach ancient Greek theatre and record the lives of Afghan artists, who try to combine art and culture under very difficult circumstances in this troubled country.



Women and Art can change the world!
