The special programme entitled Afghanistan – From Inside as part of the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film will present the works of Afghan filmmakers for the first time. In doing so, DOK Leipzig is giving new impetus to intercultural dialogue and underscoring its reputation as a place of encounters.

The 15 films in the special programme - curated by Martin Gerner - offer impressive proof of a cultural liveliness and contemporary trends from a land which had internationally been regarded until now as being without its own film scene. DOK Leipzig thus is also reacting here to a growing need for information from the public. For although Afghanistan has long been dominating our daily headlines, we know little about the land and its people.
