Review
A documentary by 14-year-old Hana Makhmalbaf, recorded with a small digital camera, showing the backstage of production in the quest of her older sister Samirato to make the film ĎAt Five In The Afternoon'. What we witness is not just a remarkable portrait of post-Taliban Afghanistan and the still palpable fear of its people, in particular the women, but also a striking and not always flattering insight into the determined and sometimes ruthless methods Samira adopts in order to make her film a reality. Joy Of Madness is an intelligently observed film, made even more remarkable by the fact that its maker is barely in her teens.
