GIRLS ON THE AIR is a strongly interesting document about Afghanistan and the “new internal democracy” building process. Humaira, founder and manager of Radio Sahar, the first independent community radio station run by women, who tells the stories of the women of her country, becomes a symbol of Afghanistan, alive and multifaceted, capable of discussing and going through rigid stereotypes in which reality is so often trapped. GIRLS ON THE AIR will take you into the minds of the young Afghani who are trying to make a difference. Radio Sahar’s name describes this hope beautifully. In Afghani, it means “dawn”.
