Inside Kaboul

Caroline Gillet and Denis Walgenwitz - 2023


A short film about the daily lives of Afghani youngsters under the Talibans, between the shock of their arrival in the summer of 2021 and the new realities of a regime that deprives women and girls of their most elementary human rights. Poetic and deeply moving animated images accompanied by the voices of two young women, Raha and Marwa, whose lives were suddenly transformed.

From voice notes to radio reports and from drawings to 2D animated documentary footage, Inside Kaboul is the result of a long creative process and a collective desire to bear witness. For several months Caroline Gillet talked to Raha, who stayed in Afghanistan and faces the violence of the regime, and Marwa, who lives in a refugee camp in Abu Dhabi. Inspired by their conversations and the sounds of the city where she was born, Kubra Khademi’s drawings take us on a journey to Kabul and show us the daily lives of young people and the uncertainties they face. What does the future hold when you’re 20 years old in Afghanistan?
