Iron-willed in the face of cultural and familial pressures, a courageous young Afghan woman forces her father to stand trial for years of sexual abuse—and exposes a sexist justice system and the plight of women at its mercy.

Our take

A stirring story of resistance and resilience, Sahra Mani’s vérité documentary marshals its outrage against a repressive, corrupt, and patriarchal judicial system. Urgent in its politics, gruelling in its portrait of abuse, A Thousand Girls Like Me is above all inspiring in its search for justice.
