"The hopes, fears, and aspirations of adolescence are expressed in the close friendship of two Afghan boys. As their acceptance of the filmmakers leads them to express their feelings more and more openly, the film grows rich in fact and themes of universal concern. Filmed in the Balkh Province, an area inhabited by Tajik and other Central Asian peoples. The town of Aq Kupruk is approximately 320 miles northwest of Kabul. The theme of the film focuses on education and socialization.... Particular attention is paid to the lives of one or two young people in the educational system, to their family and kinship structure, and more broadly to educational policies in the developing world."

Khyber ( visu )

For more than a century Britain was engaged in war with the Pashtun tribesmen of India's North West frontier. It began with the bloodiest massacre in the history of the British Empire when, in January 1842, some 17,000 British soldiers, women and children died in Gandamark, en route to the Khyber Pass. 'Khyber' tells the story of how the British experience in the North West Frontier was part of the Great Game, as Rudyard Kipling called it. It was never a successful game and rarely took cognisance of the wishes of the Pashtun tribes that bore the brunt of the different resulting wars. Looking at the history up to the Soviet invasion in 1979, Khyber features the final interview with Sir Olaf Caroe, last governor of the North West Frontier Province before partition, and with Field Marshall Sir Claude Auchinleck, last commander of the British Army in India. The film looks at the different perspectives of the conflicts by both British and Pashtun and provides fascinating parallels to what is happening in Afghanistan today
