Breaking The Silence: Music In Afghanistan

(Breaking The Silence: Music In Afghanistan) Director: Simon Broughton, Afghánistán/Velká Británie, 2002, original version, English subtitles, 60 min

Breaking The Silence by Simon Broughton, publisher of Songlines magazine and co-editor of the Rough Guide to World Music, documents the remarkable revival of musical culture in Afghanistan after the period of Taliban rule, during which almost all forms of music were prohibited, musicians censored, and traditional instruments destroyed. Tracing the recent history of the country through news footage and period clips from Afghan television and vintage feature films, the film makes it clear that the return of music to daily life in the country is part of a greater reclaiming of national heritage and culture in the name of human dignity.
