Salim Shaahen’s joyous life

Sunday, April 15

Nothingwood from the section “Antidepressant” was screened at Atlas Sineması with the participation of the director Sonia Kronlund and the film’s star Salim Shaheen. The film tells the joyous life of Afghani filmmaker Salim Shaheen, and the director Kronlund talked about the film’s starting point: “I go to Afghanistan quite often and when I come back, I would always tell bad news about assaults or breaches of women’s rights. I thought we could show a difference face of the country. After all, life continues there as well. Films are made; people get married. I wanted to show that to the world.”
