UK Premiere

The incredible true story of five unfinished films from the Communist Era in Afghanistan (1978-1991) when films were weapons, filmmakers became targets, and the dreams of constantly shifting political regimes merged with the stories told on screen. What we left unfinished is also a story about a tight-knit group of Afghan filmmakers who loved cinema enough to risk their lives for art. Despite government interference, censorship boards, scarce resources, armed opposition, and near-constant threats of arrest or death, they made films that at times were subversive and, in the filmmaker's opinions, always "true" to life.
