Screening: Voice of a Nation; My Journey through Afghanistan

23 November 2012

Frontline Club, London

Over the past 10 years director Jawed Taiman has travelled across Afghanistan to find out about the real state of his homeland.  He spoke to teachers in Bamyan and vendors of the Urdu Bazaar in Kandahar.  He met the Taliban in Herat, and travelled with the provincial governor of Ghor.  In Voice of a Nation, Taiman offers a perspective on how Afghans view these years- and how they see their future.

Born in Afghanistan, Taiman left his country as a child.  While working on the film Addicted in Afghanistan he became aware of a difference between the news coverage about Afghanistan and the reality he was confronted with on the ground.

Through conversations with Afghan men, women, students, farmers, government employees, and even insurgents opposing the government, he captures their honest opinions and views on their lives.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Jawed Taiman.
