AFGHAN STAR, A film by Havana Marking, NR, 88 min, In English, Dari andPashtun with English subtitle
After thirty years of war and five devastating years of Taliban rule, pop culture is beginning to return to Afghanistan and millions are tuning in to the wildly
popular American Idolstyle television competition Afghan Star. Two thousand people audition to compete for a cash prize and a record deal, and when viewers vote for their favorites via cell phone it is, for many, their first encounter with the democratic process. Winner of the Directing and Audience Awards in Sundances 2009 World Documentary competition, Havana Markings timely and moving film follows the dramatic stories of four young finaliststwo men and two womenas they hazard everything and even risk their lives to become the nations favorite performer. By observing the Afghani peoples relationship to its pop culture, Afghan Star is the perfect window into a countrys tenuous, ongoing struggle for modernity. What Americans consider frivolous entertainment is downright revolutionary in this troubled part of the world.
