The Screen Guide

Every 22 minutes, a civilian in Cambodia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Mozambique, Bosnia, Angola, El Salvador or elsewhere is killed or injured by a land mine. The wars of the latter half of the 20th century have left 110 million mines hidden in the fields, forests, roads, railways, water supplies, towns and houses of the poor in over 60 countries. In the ruined city of Kabul, during the time of Taliban rule, a former Mujaheddin soldier noticed a pretty Tagik girl with one leg, and he began to court her. This was the beginning of an unlikely love story. Part essay and part observational, this is an anti-war film set in a country that has become synonymous with warfare. (Also available in a 50 min version.)
