My Afghanistan - Life in the forbidden zone

On this site you can follow what happens to the Afghan Civilians – filmed by themselves.


Each week a new story will be produced telling about war, work, corruption, leisure, religion, education or love in the rural province of Helmand.


You can choose to follow a photographer or you can click on the themes. You can also ask questions which will be translated to the photographers and they will come back with answers.


My is closely linked to the Documentary film My Afghanistan – Life in the Forbidden Zone.
