3 movies ! There is a country far from us where legs ... rain from the sky ... where teachers say to their little students: <<Pay attention girls, today is your last day at school. In Afganistan you will not be going to school. There are no schools there. You will have to stay at home. But you must not give up hope. If walls are high, the sky is higher still. One day the world will see your troubles and come to your aid. If it doesn't, you will have to stand together. Close your eyes. Imagine that you are an ant. If you pretend to be an ant, you can close your eyes, and the house will appear much bigger>>

In these sad words of human hope there is the synthesis of the whole film Kandahar. A thunderous slap to our civilization. A surgical operation for the blindness of the world that does not see the suffering of its brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters born, for destiny, in a far unlucky place
