SKU: 03770-M203

Following the absorbing depiction of village life in Wolf and Sheep, Shahrbanoo Sadat returns with The Orphanage, a nostalgic paean to a more progressive period in Afghanistan's history that similarly captures the frivolities and challenges of youth. A blend of biography and fiction, the film also attests to the ways in which storytelling plays a central role in identity formation and cultural transmission, writes Anthony Carew.
