In 1994, 179 government leaders attending the Cairo International Conference on Population and Development signed a groundbreaking agreement aimed at improving the lives of women worldwide. Balancing Acts--the first in a duo of Life programs made in collaboration with women broadcasters and producers around the world to mark the 10th anniversary of that conference--explores how women from very different cultures, often faced with extremes of inequality, are taking on the status quo. Individual stories look at how Afghani women refugees are returning to pick up the pieces of their lives in Kabul; the feisty female entrepreneurs of Nigeria known as 'Mama Benz' who, despite owning an estimated 50 per cent of the country's small businesses, are denied recognition of their contribution to the economy; a teenager battling purdah to get an education in Pakistan; and the 'inherited widows' who are challenging convention in Kenya. Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and UN Commissioner for Human Rights, provides an overview of the state of women's rights worldwide--and why they are so crucial to social and economic development.

When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, taking a photo was a crime. After the regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerged and a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, FRAME BY FRAME follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape reframing Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves. Through cinema verite, intimate interviews, powerful photojournalism, and never-before-seen archival footage shot in secret during the Taliban regime, the film connects audiences with four humans in the pursuit of the truth.

Rejecting the usual device of narration and portraiture, the film asks the viewer to experience Kabul as a newly arrived visitor would.

In Snow Monkey, Gittoes paints a portrait of a Jalalabad seething with humanity, adversity and hope--focusing on three gangs of children: the Ghostbusters, persecuted Kochi boys who hawk exorcisms of bad luck and demons; the Snow Monkeys, who sell ice cream to support their families; and the Gangsters, a razor gang led by a nine-year-old antihero called Steel, terrifying to the core but still capable of experiencing aspects of the childhood seemingly taken from him. With a deeply humane vision, Gittoes shows us the unseen nature of Afghanistan's politics, culture and society, up close and startlingly personal.

The first documentary ever chosen to compete in the International Critics' Week at Cannes (where it won the grand prize), Janus Metz's Armadillo follows a platoon of Danish soldiers on a six-month tour of Afghanistan in 2009. An intimate, visually stunning account of both the horror and growing cynicism of modern warfare, the film premiered at the top of the box office in Denmark, provoking a national debate over government policy and the rules of engagement.
The American bombardment of Afghanistan and the subsequent overthrow of the Taliban left a power vacuum that the United Front (aka the Northern Alliance) were all too eager to fill. George Bush's Coalition Against Terrorism didn't have any better ideas, so their blood-stained misrule from 1992-96 - when warlords jostled for power and in-fighting left tens of thousands dead - was forgotten. Now they form a large part of a NATO-approved interim government. But in today's Kabul, the Kalashnikov rules. Violent crime is on the rise once again. Can the United Front's former warlords bury their differences for long enough to achieve democratic rule? Award-winning reporter Phil Rees sounds a note of caution.
More than one million Afghans were driven out of their homes by American bombs. Some 8,000 of them ended-up in Makaki, the desperately under-resourced Iranian Red Crescent refugee camp near the Afghan-Iran border. The 5,500 refugees with tents are the camp's lucky ones - the real tragedy unfolds among the people on the outskirts. These people have travelled for miles in the hope of getting food and shelter, only to be disappointed. Documentary film-maker Taghi Amirani gained rare access to Makaki to expose the plight of these forgotten refugees. 'If one American dies, ' says one, 'the whole world hears about it. I've lost my wife and child and now live in dirt, and no one cares'.
