Aina Women Filming Group

Fourteen women were trained as camera operators and video journalists at AINA, Afghan Media and Culture Center. Co-founded by acclaimed photojournalist Reza Deghati and several French journalists, the AINA program was developed to support democracy in Afghanistan through the development of media and cultural expression. To date, students have completed several news reports for French, German, and Finnish television, and two one-hour documentary films: AFGHANISTAN UNVEILED and SHADOWS. Six of the women have received year-long, paid contracts to produce films and news segments for AINA, which is being established as a production company for some of the camerawomen to continue their work, hosting new training and producing regular programs such as news reports, documentaries, and short films for the Afghan mobile cinema.
