DocLab Shorts 24 Nov at 19:45
A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
In Kabul’s Portrait, Afghan-Canadian filmmaker Ariel expands the boundaries of modern portraiture by creating a range of riveting interactive digital profiles of contemporary Kabul’s storytellers, from artists and journalists to filmmakers, actors, and photographers.
Spanning class, place, and history, Kabul’s Portrait explores the complex experiences of a creative class who are survivors of upheaval, censorship, violence, and oppression in a constantly changing nation. This innovative project offers a rare, intimate, and unusual encounter with a place and its people.
