The Prince of Nothingwood Rated 15

The Prince of Nothingwood

Dir. Sonia Kronlund. France, 2017. 1h 26m. French/Dari/subs. Starring Salim Shaheen, Qurban Ali, Sonia Kronlund.

A hilarious and strangely touching documentary about Salim Shaheen, Afghanistan’s most prolific filmmaker and larger-than-life charisma bomb. Salim travels to a town near Kabul to show several of his 110 films, and decides to shoot his next project while he is there.

'A hilariously self-aware take on a frontline cottage industry...The myth behind the man who is Afghanistan’s biggest film auteur.' ★★★★ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
