Inside Kabul

(Inside Kabul)

Friends Raha and Marwa both grew up in Kabul but were split up because of the Taliban. When the radical movement violently seized power in 2021, one decided to stay, the other to flee.

The animated film captures several months following the events watched in horror by the entire Western world. When Raha and Marwa were children, their parents told them about 1990s life under Taliban rule. Now it’s all back. Raha watches as the brutal regime plunges the country into a deep crisis without any prospects, while Marwa and her husband spend monotonous months in a refugee facility while they wait for a decision about their future. The short film is underscored by the authentic audio diaries of both young women, who are trying to find hope in a world that fell apart for them overnight.
