“My Afghanistan: Life in the Forbidden Zone”

Monday, June 17, 2013

Director Nagieb Khaja talks about his documentary “My Afghanistan: Life in the Forbidden Zone.” Khaja, a Danish journalist of Afghan origin, travels to Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand province in Afghanistan, and gives people mobile phones equipped with cameras and asks them to film their daily lives, providing a rare glimpse into the war-torn existence of ordinary Afghans. “My Afghanistan” depicts how Afghans struggle to live in the constant shadow of violence. It’s playing at Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, as part of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival.
