Documentary filmmaker Alison MacLean presented to the NOA of BC’s February event to a sold-out crowd that prompted many questions and comments. Alison’s 70-minute documentary “Burkas2Bullets” will be shown at the SFU-Woodward Theatre on Friday, March 3rd, at 7:00 pm.
Alison is owner and director of Tomboy Digital Productions. “Burkas2Bullets” reflects her six years of combat camera footage, during which she has been embedded with Afghan, Canadian, American, German, French, British, and Dutch forces. Often receiving requests by others to accompany and assist her, she has turned them down, unwilling to put others at risk by going where she goes.
“A personal journey through 2010-16 and the drama of war and the empowerment of women,” as she describes her documentary. Highly recommended.
