Afghanistan – A Distant War

Robert Nickelsberg

May 22, 2015: Moving Mountains Symposium: Afghanistan


Mountainfilm will explore the politics, people, photography, poetry and more of Afghanistan during its 2015 Moving Mountains Symposium. Speakers will include filmmakers Sebastian Junger, Afghanistan’s first female parliamentarian Fawzia Koofi, war photographer Robert Nickelsberg and more. The idea, Festival Director David Holbrooke said, is to examine more than just the conflicts that have for so long dominated the conversation on Afghanistan: “What we hope to capture is some of the spirit of the people. These are people who have embodied indomitable spirit for so long.”
