Motherland Afghanistan

We watched Motherland Afghanistan tonight. It's a documentary about one doctor's efforts to make a difference in Afghanistan (his homeland).

A quote from the box cover:

"You won't remain unmoved."
- LA Weekly

That's very true!

As I recently finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns, it was helpful to be able to see real images (of Afghanistan) that I could associate with what I had read about. BTW, most of the movie, The Kite Runner, was actually filmed in western China.

Read more about the film via the link above.

Highly recommended.

Here's a preview:
