Review
Nafas is an Afghan journalist living in Canada when she gets a message from her sister, still living in the place of their birth, pronouncing that come the next solar eclipse she will commit suicide. Nafas decides to make the perilous journey to her home land and find her sister, returning to the veil she had long left behind on her return to a country ravaged by civil war and still under the iron grip of the Taliban. Kandahar is a stunning piece of film making with some breathtaking images. Shot out of sheer necessity in a semi-documentary style it offers a deeply moving insight into a people devastated by internal conflict, but who were still to experience the retribution which followed the twin tower bombings.
