    The director and often star of 110 films over 30 years, Salim Shaheen is the biggest fish in the tiny pond of Afghan film: as he puts it, "Nothingwood". Exuberant and tireless, with a lifelong love of Indian cinema (and sweet tea), we follow him to screenings and a mountain shoot in Bamyan. This is a world where army units provide location security - and are then roped in as extras - actresses are chaperoned by their fathers, and divine providence trumps health and safety. This fascinating and hilarious doc celebrates the defiance of a shoestring film industry and their audience against the shadow of the Civil War and the ongoing Taliban threat. Full details.
