Takhar Prison, four cells, 40 women, 34 children... Outside, women wearing burqas; behind bars, women without burqas... In these Afghan prisons, women live without any connection to the outside world, and face threat of death when they are released.
Via the testimony of imprisoned women, this documentary shows how “moral crimes” oppress women in post-Taliban Afghanistan, and offers a new perspective on women’s struggle to rewrite their life stories, stories which have been shaped by the most trying, challenging of conditions.
Published as part of Pera Learning programs, “The Little Yellow Circle (Küçük Sarı Daire)” is a children’s book written by Tania Bahar and illustrated by Marina Rico, offering children and adults to a novel learning experience where they can share and discover together.
