Afghan Film Screening | 2013 Asian Contemporary Art Week | SF

Programmed by the artist Mariam Ghani and the independent curator Leeza Ahmady, this screening juxtaposes contemporary Afghan shorts and selections drawn from the ongoing digitization project in the archive of Afghan Films, Afghanistan’s national film institute, which operated from 1967 to 1996.

The archive program draws from feature film clips, documentary shorts, weekly newsreels, and propaganda films produced from 1967 to 1980 to reflect changing fashions, mores, and politics as the Afghan state shifted from monarchy to autocratic republic to embattled Communist project.
