Love Crimes of Kabul

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Director Tanaz Eshaghian talks about her film “Love Crimes of Kabul.” In Kabul, Afghanistan’s central woman’s prison, nearly half of the prisoners are young women imprisoned for the “moral crimes” of premarital sex, adultery, or running away from their husband and home. The film is a portrait of three young Afghan women accused of committing these crimes and follows them from prison to trial, and uncovers the pressures and paradoxes that women in Afghanistan face today. “Love Crimes of Kabul” is playing at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater.
