Afghan Chronicles

Top of page

Since the fall of the Taliban, Afghanistan has been rebuilding itself and reviving democracy, and there is some freedom of expression. With its radio station and two magazines, one of them aimed at women, the press agency Killid Media is a real media phenomenon. This new press, dedicated to fighting ignorance and illiteracy, is promoting a message freed from the constraints of tradition and setting the foundations of modernity. As it follows the distribution of these popular magazines across Kabul, Afghan Chronicles shows the struggles within this changing society and paints a touching picture of a land that is a work in progress, dreaming of a better future. Yet achievements are still fragile. What will become of the dream of renewal cherished by this nation trying to rebuild itself? Bonus: exclusive interview with director Dominic Morissette.
