Children and youth are now in the process of filming their own lives in Kabul, Afghanistan. While most international news media report from the country through the lens of war, GVL and Afghanistanbloggen want young Afghans to film and talk about their lives on their own. They explain what they want to emphasize and how they want to present themselves in the video above.

The Kabul Cards is a cooperative project. Filmed by Sadaf, Sahar and Nargis and produced by GVL and Anders Sømme Hammer http://www.andershammer.com
