This is part of our justREEL film series, an extension of Marda Loop Justice Film Festival in Calgary. This year we’re going virtual with screenings available throughout Alberta. The screening will be followed by a pre-recorded discussion with the filmmaker or an expert on the film's topic. The film festival uses the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a blueprint for film programming.
Please see below for instructions on reserving a ticket. There is no cost to attend any of the MLJFF events, although we do greatly appreciate donations.
The festival is run entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for community support. Please distribute this message to your network as you see fit. If you would like additional information or are interested in a partnership or sponsorship, do not hesitate to contact us.
MLJFF Presents : The Forbidden Reel by Ariel Nasr
April 13th 5:30pm - 11:55pm via XerbTV
Driven to create amidst war and chaos, Afghan filmmakers gave birth to an extraordinary national cinema. Driven to destroy, Taliban extremists set out to torch that legacy. Marveling in the beauty and fragile power of movies, Afghan-Canadian director Ariel Nasr crafts a thrilling and utterly original story of modern Afghanistan.
