The Hyderabad Film Club is screening an Iranian Film, Kandhar, on 9th February, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. The film is directed by Mohsen Makhmalbaf.

Winner of a Jury Prize at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, Kandhar is an epic tale of hope and courage, inspired by the true story of a woman's attempt to enter Afghanistan. Nafas, an Afghanistan-born Canadian journalist, returns to her homeland in a desperate attempt to reach her sister, who, overcome with grief after being injured by a landmine and her despair over the Taliban's systemic oppression of women, has vowed that she will commit suicide at the time of the next solar eclipse, only three days away.

Clothed in the traditional head-to-head burka, and posing as a subservient wife, Nafas sees her odyssey take her across a dramatic desert landscape, where she encounters bandits, corpse-robbers, marooned exiles, overwhelmed Red Cross workers, hordes of land-mine victims, and finally a wedding procession that brings her within eyeshot of Kandhar.

Entry is only for the members of HFC. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
