Since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001, Afghanistan has been remaking itself. Kabul, the capital, is today a hive of activity, and the press has attained some freedom.
Afghan Chronicles focuses on the press gr...展开oup Killid Media, which comprises two magazines (Killid and Mursal, a women's publication) and a radio station. The documentary reveals how this media phenomenon operates, thus portraying the rebuilding of a country that dreams of a better future.
The magazine Killid, founded to be an engine of change, carries a message of liberation from the bonds of the past and seeks new freedom of action. With its popular and accessible content, this new media venture, with women playing a leading role, combats illiteracy and ignorance. Confronting prejudices and taboos, this documentary chronicles changing attitudes in a country moving towards modernity while remaining deeply attached to traditional values.
