"A sharp, soulful doc... As its subjects’ images probe unhealed schisms of gender, faith and privilege in a country still hostile to liberal journalism... the film in turn proves the alternately confrontational and cathartic power of the camera lens."
"Follow four photojournalists focused on the future..."
"A visually elegant, deftly edited piece, one which shows the beauty of Afghanistan in a way the West virtually never sees."
"Compelling... inspirational... affecting."
"A bracing tribute to the power of photojournalism."
"An indispensable visual history"
"The film features photographers passionate about telling stories of the true identity
of Afghanistan – whether they are newsworthy or not."
"Balance[s] the film’s conflict-zone violence with humanity and humor..."
– Filmmaker Magazine
"Gives a passionate voice to an Afghan vision."
– The Washington Post
"Bombach and Scarpelli manage to break free from the usual clichés, as well as from pietism easy and sensationalism,
and do so with lightness and depth at the same time."
"Superbly made and emotionally devestating look at a nation truly on the brink... entrancing."
"Tenacious and brave"
