Hey I’m Tawfiq and I am 17 Years old. I was born in Afghanistan and lived most of my live there. 14 months ago I came to Germany and settled here. I’m interesed in making movies, music, culture and people.
Form me KINO ASYL in an opportunity to live these interests. It’s also a chance to introduce a part of my culture and my homecountry through movies. I want to present Buzakshi Boys, because it’s a beautiful and also sad movie.
It’s exciting to watch Syngué sabour (The Patience Stone) and see what happens, when the man of this woman is paralyzed. The movie tells about problems women have in Afghanistan.

In a country torn apart by war a young woman in her thirties watches over her older husband. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. He has been abandoned by his fellow combatants and brothers. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, the woman one day decides to say things she could never have spoken before, even though they have been married for ten years. Her husband has unconsciously become “the patience stone” – a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it.
