In April 2017 Andrea visited Afghanistan to shoot a documentary on two girls, Zahara and Fatima, respectively studying law and civil engineering at Gawarshad University in Kabul.

The two girls had been able to go to school thanks to the ‘Arghosha Faraway Schools Committee‘, co-founded by Marco and Maria Rosario Niada, which has so far built eleven schools in the province of Bamyan since 2005, including Zarin and Charde, which the girls attended.

The documentary will attempt to explore a more positive side to this war torn country, focusing on Zahara and Fatima, as well as their families and teachers living in the Afghan countryside, showing their struggle against the discrimination of women mainly through education.
