Kabul Transit

Movie Summary

Director:
David Edwards
Released:
2006
Rating:
Not Available
Kabul Transit is a street-level documentary about the war-torn city of Kabul, Afghanistan and its diverse residents. The film uses a shifting mosaic of encounters, captured glances and telling gestures to reveal the story of life in modern Kabul. The film provides a picture of a city in fragments, without narration or commentary. The scenes range from kite-flyers that give the impression of a light, human-interest film to a NATO airbase where official duties become almost mundane. By moving through the streets between public and private spaces, listening in on conversations and probing the dark alleys that media usually avoid, viewers experience the city as if they are newly arrived visitors. Amid the dust and rubble Westerners and Afghans adjust to the possibility of peace. The film gives a rare glimpse into the city and the ways Afghans are trying to survive while being caught within a world of globalization.
