Cat and Hannah, two British women in their twenties, take on the treacherous 3000km drive along Central Asia's Pamir Highway - the second highest international road on Earth – and one that few women have undertaken solo. It runs from the southern Uzbek deserts, through Tajikistan's Pamir mountain range, climbing over 4600m into Kyrgyzstan and all the way to its vibrant capital, Bishkek.

Their route brings them to the doorsteps of women from all walks of life, igniting change from within their communities in different ways - from a group training Tajikistan's first ever female trekking guides to a feminist collective running workshops on sexual pleasure. Women Behind the Wheel celebrates feminism of all shapes and sizes, proving that a culmination of even the smallest of changes can amount to a quiet revolution.

Followed by a Q&A with co-directors Catherine Haigh and Hannah Congdon.

‘A bona fide documentary, bridging cultures and people, giving voice to the daughters of a neglected part of Asia’
