Directed by George Gittoes
Renowned Australian artist and filmmaker George Gittoes recruits war-damaged children and their street gangs to shoot local Pashto-style films in Jalalabad, one of Afghanistan’s most violent cities. A vivid and startling portrait, especially of the razor-wielding Gangster capo ten-year-old Steel, who is terrifying to the core, but still capable of experiencing aspects of the childhood seemingly taken from him.
WARNING: Contains some violent and graphic scenes. May not be suitable for all audiences.
George Gittoes directed THE MISCREANTS OF TALIWOOD, which screened at SFF 2011.
