Director : MOHSEN MAKHMALBAF
A documentary by MOHSEN MAKHMALBAF
In the border villages between Iran and Afghanistan, director Mohsen Makhmalbaf (KANDAHAR, THE CYCLIST) films the children who do not attend school and questions why they are not being educated. He encounters a group of girls studying in UNICEF classes: one of them refuses to cast off her burqa despite the fact that she has escaped Afghanistan and the threat of the Taliban. She is more afraid of the horrifying god they have created than of the Taliban themselves.
All proceeds from this movie will be donated to the Afghan Children Education Movement.
