Film Showing: Afghan Star and post screening discussion
November 10, 2019 @ 7:30 pm £5 – £10
|There will be a screening of the film ‘Afghan Star’ at the National Centre for Early Music on Sunday 10 November at 7.30pm. The film focusses on 4 finalists, two men and two women, in the Afghan TV show Afghan Star, all of whom come from different ethnic groups. Modelled on Pop Idol, the final is watched by a third of the population who, in an early exercise in democracy, vote by SMS. An important exploration of modern culture in Afghanistan, the film received two awards at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and a Prix Italia. Afghan composer and musician Qais Essar will lead a post-screening discussion.
