Cinema in the Midst of Struggle, in collaboration with la lumière collective, presents:

“An Inside Look at the Afghan Film Archives”
Screening and Discussion with Filmmaker Ariel Nasr

For nearly five years, filmmaker Ariel Nasr has had full access to the national film archive of Afghanistan while creating his soon to be released feature documentary, The Forbidden Reel. Co-produced by Montreal-based indie production company, Loaded Pictures and the National Film Board of Canada, with the participation of TVO, RDI, and Al Jazeera, Forbidden Reel explores Afghanistan’s political history through the lenses of its filmmakers. The film chronicles the resistance and resilience of Afghan artists, activists, and people amidst the waves of imperialist invasion, occupation, and destabilization that have characterized the nation’s modern history. Nasr will present selected excerpts from the film, and take us on a guided tour of the archive’s contents.
