Film Screening: Afghan Star
We hosted an intimate screening of Afghan Star, a heartwarming documentary by journalist and film-maker Havana Marking at Goldfinger Factory. 

Winner of the World Cinema Audience Awards at the Sundance Film Festival (2009) this film follows the story of four contestants appearing in an Afghan reality talent show (the equivalent of the X Factor). The contestants become national celebrities and we learn about their different personal stories. It's an entertaining reflection of this popular phenomenon. Find out more about the documentary here
