When the Taliban set fire to thousands of books and films in 2001, as many as 1,000 prints from the Afghan Film Archive were burned in a fifteen-day conflagration. Luckily the negatives were saved, new prints were made, and these important documents of Afghan life are now available online at the public archive pad.ma. In a new feature, published in collaboration with the New York Review of Books, artist Mariam Ghani looks at the evolution of Afghanistan’s national Jeshn celebration as captured on film since 1967. Watch and read on Creative Time Reports here.
