  • Far from Afghanistan

    2012. USA. Directed by John Gianvito, Jon Jost, Minda Martin, Travis Wilkerson, Soon-Mi Yoo. Inspired by the 1967 omnibus film Far from Vietnam (Loin par Vietnam), produced by Chris Marker, filmmaker and scholar Gianvito invited four American filmmakers to join him in examining aspects of the war in Afghanistan from the perspective of Americans at home; their segments are then combined with on-the-ground footage in Afghanistan, shot by Afghani filmmakers. The interwoven material—five dramatic and documentary narratives, Afghanistan footage, and factual texts—coalesces into an illuminating portrait of the toll war takes on people’s lives.
