Description

Trailer for Love City Jalalabad.

Internationally renowned filmmaker and artist George Gittoes has learned that documentation of frontline action is not enough; he wants to use art to bring about change.

He forms a Yellow House, an artists' collective, in the western Afghan city of Jalalabad - a province long controlled by the Taliban. Next he decides to make movies, recruiting female actors from Pakistan (there are no Pashtun-speaking Afghan women actors) to join Australian performance artist Hellen Rose, and action star Amir Shah.

Determined to film an Afghan story, not a foreign one, Gittoes is often stymied in his attempts, but his dogged determination wins through.
