Afghanistan has been fighting for 30 years. Every valley amid every mountain has bared witness to the sorrow of war. It’s been ten years now since coalition forces entered Afghanistan in the fall of 2001. As security over large swaths of the country is transferred over to the Afghan National Army and Air Force, casualties on all sides continue to mount. It seems violence is as resilient as the land itself.
This documentary offers a small glimpse into the various accounts of human rights violations that occurred between 1978 and the fall of 2001. Sectarian bloodshed was wholesale during the latter half of this period and as a consequence, the wounds of such battles have not yet healed in the collective memory of most Afghans.
The United States recently announced that major combat operations would seize by the middle of 2013, as NATO seeks a political end to the war with the Taliban. Such announcements by the West have stoked fears amongst many Afghans – many believe that once international forces pullout, the Taliban will return to power and another civil war will explode once again. Such concerns are not unfounded - history has a nasty way of repeating itself in Central Asia.
