Kabul, City in the Wind Documentary film, 2018, 88 min.

IDFA Opening film 2018. In his first full-length documentary, Aboozar Amini loosely follows the stories of the bus driver and the two brothers. At home with his children, Abas rejoices, but happiness is scarce. His bus breaks down and creditors are chasing him for money. To forget his troubles, he sings a song and smokes hash. Afshin and Benjamin do their best not to disappoint their dad and take their chores around the house very seriously. Among these impressions of life in Kabul, Amini has his protagonists talk to the camera directly about their worries and dreams—the Afghan nightmare is never far away.
