LAILA AT THE BRIDGE

A story of heroism against impossible odds, this remarkable doc from Québec producer Ina Fichman follows Laila Haidari, an irrepressible survivor of child marriage and her own traumatic past. In the face of physical threats, governmental opposition, and the departure of the international community from an Afghanistan on the verge of collapse, Laila fights to keep alive her labour of love — a drug treatment centre and a restaurant staffed by recovering addicts. LAILA AT THE BRIDGE is a portrait of a determined woman who risks everything and perseveres in the face of overwhelming challenges. Best Documentary, International Film Festival Innsbruck; Social Justice Award, Santa Barbara Int'l Film Festival "One of the best films at DOC NYC and probably 2018... highly recommended."
