Far from Afghanistan

  • United States
Audio Tracks 

An omnibus film by five American filmmakers and a collective of young Afghan media journalists, FAR FROM AFGHANISTAN forms a mosaic of cinematic approaches to take a critical look at the longest overseas war in U.S. history. Inspired by the 1967 collaborative film LOIN DU VIETNAM, FAR FROM AFGHANISTAN likewise unites a variety of filmmakers, cinematographers, editors and technicians in the international effort to redirect U.S. policy away from military and political intervention toward true humanitarian and developmental care-giving as invited.
