Film: "Afghan Star"


Location: Browing Cinema, DPAC

“Afghan Star” (Film) -

Winner of the Directing and Audience Awards in Sundance’s 2009 World Documentary competition, Havana Marking’s timely and moving film follows the dramatic stories of four young finalists in Afghan Star, an American Idol-style—two men and two women—as they hazard everything to become the nation’s favorite performer. By observing the Afghani people’s relationship to its pop culture, “Afghan Star” is the perfect window into a country’s tenuous, ongoing struggle for modernity.
