Safar e Ghandehar


(Iran, 2001, 84 minutes)

An Afghan journalist living in Canada decides to return to her native country to rescue her sister who is chafing under Taliban rule. Heartfelt indictment of the treatment of women in Afghanistan under the Taliban that packs quite a punch as a problem picture but isn’t quite as convincing narratively.
