My Afghanistan—Life in the Forbidden Zone
Nagieb Khaja, 2012
Denmark | English and Danish, Dari and Pashtu with English subtitles | 88 minutes

U.S. premiere! Q&A with filmmaker!

Nagieb Khaja, a Danish journalist of Afghan origin, travels to Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand province in Afghanistan. Because journalists are not able to move safely outside of the capital, contact with the civilian population in rural areas is almost impossible. But Khaja has a trick up his sleeve.
