LAND OF THE ENLIGHTENED

“Hypnotic, playful and chillingly austere, the hybrid documentary blends romance and raw realism” (Screen Daily)

 

An intriguing hybrid of documentary and fiction, this Sundance Film Festival cinematography award-winning film is an inspired look at the Afghan conflict and what the future holds for that ravaged nation. The film shot on 16mm over seven years follows a gang of young Afghan boys and US soldiers at the time the US military prepares to leave the country.
