Kandajar

This acclaimed international film comes to us from ... well, from Aghanistan, obviously. This fiction/documentary hybrid charts one female journalist's efforts to make her way across Afghanistan to find her sister among the harsh rule of the (now toppled) Taliban. Shot on-the-fly with largely amateur actors, Kandajar is not the most polished product, but has an honesty and an immediacy that is hard to deny. Clearly, this film's unflinching look at the harsh conditions the Afghani people have labored under makes this a hot topic right now, sure to lure many curious viewers. In Farsi and English with English subtitles. 85 minutes
