Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama


Aroview: A Canadian-Afghani journalist travels incognito into the heart of wartorn Afghanistan to find her sister.

Filmed at the height of the Tailban's oppressive regime, this is something of a window into the lives of the general population, registering many absurd and horrific images of destruction and suffering. Though the blend of fiction and documentary is unsettling and heavy-handed at times (partly due to the nature of the surreptitious production), this finally conveys an impressive sense of urgency.
