Award-winning film showing to support In-Sight Photography Project
BRATTLEBORO >> "Photos are a part of human life. Unfortunately, the Taliban made photography illegal [in Afghanistan]. If a country is without photography, that country is without an identity!"
"Frame By Frame" was filmed after the fall of the Taliban, after foreign troops withdrew, and as the reality of rebuilding a free press began. The audience is invited to witness powerful images that include both archival and contemporary footage.
Four photojournalists in the pursuit of truth follow the reframing of Afghanistan for the world, and for them selves. The winner of a dozen awards, this film is showing in Brattleboro for just one night. Here is an opportunity to view a spectacular documentary about a country finding its way from occupation to standing on its own. As a fledgling press emerged, a revolution was born.
"Frame By Frame" is showing at the Latchis Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. and is co-sponsored by In-Sight Photography Project and Marlboro Collage.
