Looking Afghanistan in the eye and seeing its soul [video]

In a land that saw its first urban civilization rise around 3,000 BCE with written records dating back to 500 BCE, ten years of war with a country and culture possessing a mere two hundred years of history would seem laughable but for the destruction and strife endured by this very ancient people.

It was on those people Lukas and Salome Augustin focused in their short film “Afghanistan – touch down in flight,” originally made as a tribute to a friend who died in Kabul.

As each of us has his own impression of Afghanistan that is predominantly marked with pictures of foreign forces, explosions and terror, we were privileged to have access to capture daily life and portrait some people of Afghanistan.

We hope the pictures you know will merge with the pictures you see and will enrich your view on the country in the Hindu Kush.
