The Land of the Enlightened

Sunday 13th November 5:00 PM


Our film at Rheged this season is a 'hybrid documentary': following children and soldiers around Afghanistan, film maker Pieter-Jan De Pue brings us a mix of travelogue, social realism and drama (some of the scenes are re-enactments of real events). The result should look great at Rheged, De Pue winning a cinematography award at Sundance.


“Beautifully intimate 16mm photography and a hazy structure make the film feel like an opium dream of an Adam Curtis documentary; a ragtag, lyrical companion to fellow Afghan docs Restrepo and Taxi to the Dark Side”

Phil Hoad, The Guardian
