“Seven years of beautifully intimate footage from ‘God’s garden’ are hazily structured into this documentary of a mysterious country”~Phil Hoad, The Guardian

Aroview: A creative documentary hybrid, which stages facts and fantasy side by side to reveal an intimate and poetic portrait of Afghanistan. Reminiscent of the stream-of-consciousness style of Adam Curtis' political documentaries, as well as the profound ecstatic vision of Werner Herzog.
