One in Seven Afghan Women Die in Childbirth. An Afghan Doctor Struggles to Make a Difference.

Filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi and her father, Dr. Qudrat Mojadidi, are Afghans who have made a home in the United States. After the US-led invasion to oust the Taliban, Dr. Mojadidi, a specialist in women's health, decides to return to his war-ravaged homeland to help rebuild and modernize the hospitals and clinics which serve the women of Afghanistan.

Sedika, camera in hand, accompanies her father in order to document this most difficult yet rewarding journey. The result is Motherland Afghanistan, an inspiring portrait of dedication and fortitude in some of the most harsh and unforgiving physical, political and cultural terrain on Earth.

(Webmaster's comment: Though not a "Doctors Without Borders" movie, this film illustrates the need for their work and the hardships they face.)
