Documentary Description

During the past decade the world's filmmaking community has shown a heightened interest in Afghanistan, often transporting crews and cameras across the globe to film the cities and ancient landmarks in an effort to record, reveal, and romanticize the country. This series of films, organized in association with the exhibition Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul, brings together a variety of nonfiction, semi-fictional, and documentary works, along with short subjects and television films. A program of recent experimental video by Afghan and Afghan American artists illuminates both the breadth and the beauty of the country's artistic legacy.

Since the defeat of the Taliban regime, US and coalition forces have spent years rebuilding Afghanistan's infrastructure. Today, incredible progress has been made toward the goal of Afghans taking control of their own country. Through hiring initiatives, education, safety training, medical assistance, and basic humanitarian aid, the US has helped Afghans stand on their own two feet. Written, shot, and edited by SGT Dan Caudill, US Army Shot on location all across Afghanistan.
