(A Flickering Truth) Director: Pietra Brettkelly, NZ-AFG, 2015, Afghan version / Czech and English subtitles, 91 min

Afghan filmmaker Ibrahim Arify returns from exile in Germany to Kabul to rebuild a film archive from ruins. The destructive Taliban almost completely annihilated Afghan Films, but the archive staff did save some film reels. Film excerpts and eyewitness recollections present the troubled history of Afghanistan and a record of its cinematography, which started opening this country to the world several decades ago. Even though Ibrahim leaves his devastated homeland after a time, the rescued material travels around Afghanistan finding new audiences. This visually gripping documentary presents a very honest picture of this country with a painful past and an uncertain future.
