Afghan Cycles is a feature documentary about a new generation of Afghan women pushing gender and cultural barriers by riding bicycles.
The film follows a diverse and growing group of women who are risking their honor and their lives for the joy and liberation of riding a bicycle. From rural cycling clubs to a National Cycling Team, these women are ushering in a new era for a country slowly awakening to global influence and inevitable cultural change. Intertwined, their stories lead us on a journey into a country of beauty and contradictions, through decades of upheaval and repression, to today; their innocent act of revolution a harbinger of a brighter future for women in traditionally male-dominated societies around the globe.
