Frame by Frame
USA | 2015 | 85 min | English | Alexandria Bombach & Mo Scarpelli

When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, taking a photo was a crime.

After the regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerged

and a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media

withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists.

Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and character, Frame by Frame

follows four Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous

media landscape  - re-framing Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves.
