An Afghan Love Story
Wajma | Barmak Akram, 2013
Afghanistan/France | Persian with English subtitles | 85 minutes

It's snowing in Kabul, and gregarious waiter Mustafa charms a pretty student named Wajma. The pair begins a clandestine relationship—they're playful and passionate but ever-mindful of the societal rules they are breaking. After Wajma discovers she is pregnant, her certainty that Mustafa will marry her falters, and word of their dalliance gets out. Her father must decide between his culturally held right to uphold family honor and his devotion to his daughter. A Film Movement release.
