Kabul, City in the Wind by Aboozar Amini
(Afghanistan, Paesi Bassi, 2018, 88’) v.o: persiano, sottotitoli: inglese, italiano
Kabul as seen through the daily lives of two kids and a bus driver, set against the background of a city destroyed by political and religious powers. Afshin (12) and his younger brother Benjamin (6) live on a hillside outside Kabul. Violence has become a part of their innocence and the graveyard is their playground. When their father leaves for another country, Afshin’s childhood ends abruptly. Abbas is a bus driver with a double personality, a loving father and a ruthless driver who blows his top all the time. His lengthy attempts to fix his broken bus reveal a life torn between truth and lies.
