Good Morning Kandahar (2008)
National Film Board of Canada
"My country fights a war in my father’s country. And I look on with a growing sense of confusion." So Ariel Nasr begins his powerful new documentary, Good Morning Kandahar, which gives poignant voice to the dilemmas felt by thousands of young Afghans around the world — many in surprising places — as they grapple with events in their homeland. The film introduces us to young Afghan-Canadians torn between a deep desire to help Afghanistan and fear that things will never change. Good Morning Kandaharis a moving and rich film that brings a profoundly needed personal perspective to a painful controversy. Good Morning Kandaharwas produced as part of the Reel Diversity Competition for emerging filmmakers of colour. Reel Diversity is a National Film Board of Canada initiative in partnership with CBC Newsworld.
