Afghanistan. The Eighth Gate

Program type: documentary
Running time: 43'
Original title: Afganistan. Ósma brama.

Is a man capable to live according to God’s laws? How can a sinner find a gate to the Kingdom of Heaven? This is a journey into the world of those, who have no doubts: they know the way to eternity, because they believe in God and fight for freedom.

It is a dreamy tale about the extraordinary world of people facing a choice between Western, secular lifestyle and religious laws of Islam. World torn between what is foreign and what is own.

Talibans explain what is good and what is wrong. And at times, throughout this dreamscape journey through Afghanistan, it's them who will reaveal the truth about us.


Produced in 2009
