(0 votes)

Established Afghan artists as well as the young generation ardently defend contemporary theatre. The horror of war and its consequences, women condition, the Taliban regime and corruption are topics tackled by Afghan themselves. Afghan actresses understood how theatre can play a real part in the reconstruction of their country. It gives human nature a mirror to reflect in, and allows the audience to wonder and think. Brave and committed, these women break taboos of society and play on stage. In Kandahar, a southern province always kept under the influence of the Talibans, men and women risk their lives when they perform theatre. For them, theatre is more than art; it is a vehicle for peace. This documentary film allows us to discover Afghanistan from a diffe rent angle and gives a more global vision of the country.
