Taliesin Cinema - WOW: The Prince of Nothingwood
Dir: Sonia Kronlund
France/Germany 2017 1 hour 27mins
Dari with subtitles
Salim Shaheen, Sonia Kronlund
A gripping and often funny tale of creativity against all odds, this is a joyous celebration of Salim Shaheen, Afghanistan’s most popular actor, director, and producer. A one-man movie industry in Afghanistan, Shaheen has made a record 110 films over 30 years, despite having no budget and the country’s on-going war. A rousing tribute to the brash, eccentric Bollywood cinema lover whose larger-than-life presence makes him more suited to being in front of the camera than behind it.
