Rebuilding a cultural scene amid the rubble: 'Kabullywood' hits French screens
Date created :
The Ayoub Cinema was once the biggest and most luxurious movie theatre in the Afghan capital, yet years under the Taliban saw it reduced to a mere shell of a building. "Kabullywood" follows a group of friends who decide to bring the place back to life, and resuscitate Afghanistan's once-vibrant cultural scene. Our reporters meet the stars of the film.
We also check out the event which celebrates shorter formats in all their glory, as the Clermont-Ferrand film festival kicks off in France's Auvergne region.
And documentaries are top of the bill in Tahiti, as the FIFO festival opens in French Polynesia.
