Osama: dir Siddiq Barmak (2003)
6 May @ 8.00 pm - 9.30 pmFree
A moving story about childhood, courage and innocence set in Afghanistan starring Marina Golbahari as a 12-year-old girl whose mother loses her job when the Taliban closes the hospital where they work. With her husband and brother killed in battle there is no one left to support the family; with nowhere left to turn, the mother disguises her daughter as a boy … Inspired by a true story, this Golden Globe winning drama is the first film made in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban. I was hailed by critics as ”stunning” (Entertainment Weekly), “breathtaking” (Slant) and “a striking work of cinematic art” (L.A. Weekly). In Dari and Farsi with English subtitles.
