Iranian director Sepideh Farsi turns her gaze to Afghanistan, a country marked by decades of war and strife and whose culture remains elusive for most observers outside the region. From the outset, Farsi deploys the metaphor of the veil: her task is, with the greatest respect, to lift it, to reveal something of the country masked from view. She does so with her characteristic curiosity and lack of ego, using the diminished medium of low-rent digital video as a means to find poetry in the world.
