    • Synopsis
    • Despite thirty years of conflict, and eleven years of military occupation, despite violence, poverty, fundamentalism and war, there is a blossoming artistic movement in Afghanistan willing to be seen. Creative Despite War foregrounds some of the most innovative young Afghan artists in their struggle to create and show their artwork in a country where freedom of expression can often be life-threatening. Despite of this fact, their art is slowly taking over the city: from paintings on Kabul’s semi-destroyed walls to heavy metal underground concerts, the film takes us on a journey into Afghanistan’s growing artistic movement and into the intimate world of these artists, showing the impact of their artistic work on the construction of a new Afghan society, and proving that there is another perspective to see the country beyond the conflict.
