We are arranging a Q&A with co-director Mo Scarpelli
This documentary uniquely shows Afghanistan through the lenses of Afghans themselves.
The Taliban outlawed photography, but their fall allowed a fledgling free press to emerge, despite ongoing dangerous, often lethal, challenges. The directors follow four courageous photojournalists as they strive to reclaim their country’s identity lost through decades of war, violence and oppression.
Employing vérité footage, interviews, and material secretly shot during the Taliban regime, the photographers’ commitment, camaraderie and investigative drive shine through a “work of profound immediacy” (The Hollywood Reporter).
