KABUL, CITY IN THE WIND

Watch Trailer

About the Film

A sobering, intimate and warm account of daily life in Kabul during the silent intervals between suicide bombings, which define life for the film's characters: Abas, a fearless bus driver who is always on the lookout for his passengers; and two boys—teenager Afshin and his younger brother Benjamin—who were separated from their father, a police officer, due to murder threats. This absorbing film skillfully captures the heaviness of coexisting with constant fear, and an unending imposed threat of bloodshed.
