It all happened when Jennifer approached to her producing partner to highlight the issue. While discussing the project, the Hollywood star also discussed about the current situation in Afghanistan as being ‘unbelievable’.
Jennifer Lawrence who interacted with Sky News said, “You watch it on the news and you know that it’s just going to eventually fade out of the news and I didn’t want these women’s lives to just be a quick story that everybody forgets about.”
The actress further shared, “I spoke to my producing partner about how to get cameras in a Taliban-run Afghanistan, and we found Sahra Mani, who is an Afghan filmmaker, and we told her this is what we want to do.
“Obviously it was extremely dangerous for her and for the three women that participated and thanks to Sahra and these amazing women’s courage, we have this footage that hopefully will explain and put more light on women’s suffrage in Afghanistan, which is just unbelievable.”
In the year 2018, Sahra directed another documentary titled ‘A Thousand Girls Like Me’. It showcased the issue of a young Afghan woman who seeks justice after he was constantly abused for several years.
Earlier, Jennifer Lawrence claimed that she was the right choice to direct ‘Bread And Roses’.
