Nomination Detail

Shot documentary style and covertly on the streets of Kabul, Mina Walking traces seven days in the life of Mina, a young girl striving for a better life in a country still severely scarred by the Taliban era. A lively, impulsive, yet ultimately powerless twelve-year-old, she dreams of being a seamstress. However, in order to support her senile grandfather and drug-addicted father, she is forced to spend her days selling items on the street. Her only act of rebellion is to try and attend school in order to get an education and a chance at a better life.


The Asia Pacific Screen Academy expresses its respect for and acknowledgement of the South East Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of country, including the custodial communities on whose land works are created and celebrated by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging. We recognise the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations peoples continue to play in storytelling and celebration spaces.
