In New York City at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, a film screening of Nagieb Khaja's My Afghanistan - Life in the Forbidden Zone, co-presented by the Dart Center.
Nagieb Khaja, a Danish journalist of Afghan origin, travels to Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand province in Afghanistan. Because journalists are not able to move safely outside of the capital, contact with the civilian population in rural areas is almost impossible. But Khaja has a trick up his sleeve. He gives people living in outlying communities mobile phones equipped with cameras and asks them to film their daily lives, providing a rare glimpse into the war-torn existence of ordinary Afghans.

In New York City at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival, a screening of Marc Wiese's Camp 14 - Total Control Zone, co-presented by the Dart Center.
Camp 14 – Total Control Zone is a portrait of a young man who grew up imprisoned by dehumanizing violence yet still found the will to escape. Born inside a North Korean prison camp as the child of political prisoners, Shin Dong-Huyk was raised in a world where all he knew was punishment, torture, and abuse. Filmmaker Marc Wiese crafts his documentary by quietly drawing details from Shin in a series of interviews in which Shin's silence says as much as his words.
