Afghan Stories (2002)
Director: Taran Davies
Category: Documentary
Studio: Vanguard
60 mins



Afghanistan you haven't seen on TV. Behind the guns and veils, there are real lives and real people with real hopes and dreams

Meet a member of the Afghan royal family once tortured by the Taliban, a refugee couple stuck in no man's land, a revered elder dedicated to peace, his soldier son, an international aid worker, US soldiers and Afghan Warlords. Afghan Stories takes us on a daring journey through Afghanistan in the midst of the US invasion with filmmakers Taran Davies and Afghan-American Walied.

The film exposes the extraordinary life experiences of ordinary people coping with turmoil as the world comes down on their country once again. The US war on the Taliban is only the latest in the series of 24 years of war and tyranny. But amazingly the new generations, who have never known peace, still have hope and dream of a future lived in prosperity and peace.
