Thursday, July 13 at 8 PM  

Doors 7:30. $5 admission.

The Echo Park Film Center presents a screening of Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s قندهار Kandahar (2001).

Filmed in refugee camps in Iran, and also secretly in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, the film portrays the catastrophes survived by the Afghan people, such as the devastation wrought by the Russians during the Soviet Invasion as well as the subsequent takeover of the government by the Taliban. Kandahar is presented in conjunction with the series true-fiction: Meta-realism in South Asian Cinema.
