Untitled Part 9: This Time

  • 6'
  • Afghanistan

Landscape images of Bamiyan in Afghanistan – including the giant rock cavities in which the magnificent Buddha statues destroyed by the Taliban in 2001 once stood – are alternated with delightful footage of children telling stories. It was only years later, upon receiving the translation, that Salloum realised these were the very same tales of Mulla Nasrudin, fantastical and comical, that he had enjoyed in his youth. An allusive chronicle of cultural displacement.
