À propos du film
The name ARYANA means “holy one”. Many decades ago, the nation of ARYANA was forcefully transitioned into becoming AFGHANISTAN, the land of seven tribes. This period of rule, brought tremendous suffering, especially for the women and girls of the nation. Outsiders entered and exited, raping the land of its resources until it was useless to invaders and too broken for the tribal war lords to make use of. Afghan men gave up on the nation. Finally, the women came out of the shadows. Slowly, through decades, they restructured the nation into the small self-sufficient nation of ARYANA. ARYANA RESURRECTED looks at the future of this nation through the powerful and difficult action taken by its women. The men of the nation are locked away. They’re being rehabilitated to re-enter the nation of ARYANA as egalitarians. PTSD, war traumas and addictions caused the men a lot of pain. They acted out in unreasonable and unholy manners on the women. Decades ago, the women of ARYANA took a vote against misogynistic self-serving goals, and fundamentalist ideas. The men of ARYANA have been quarantined since 2047. Now, it is 2077. We meet the women of Aryana on the year and day they must vote…Do we allow the men into society?
