United States of Afghanistan

by Paal Hollender Documentary Danimarca 2004 58'

This is not a report on war, but an exploration of what happened to Afghanistan, the nation we heard and read so much about following the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York 2001. Was any of it true? Completely unprepared Pål Hollender and his friend-with-a-death-wish, Swedish pop star Olle Ljungström, went to Afghanistan, wrecklessly diving into the tension building up in September 2002, the anniversary of 9/11 approaching. The disturbing ignorance of the two friends from Sweden is as relevant as the meeting with the Afghan people and their culture.
