My name is Mahdi Amiri, i was born in Afghanistan, in the region Jaghori. I want to show the people our real culture. In my homecountry, there are many different nations, which have it’s own, different cultures.
I am, for example, part of the group ‚Hazara’, which is known for its magnificent, traditional clothing and for the food.
I always wanted to show the German people something from my culture, which would certainly appeal to them. I have so much to tell about it. KINO ASYL is a chance for me, which brings me a step closer to this goal.
I chose this movie, because it shows:
- what 40 years of war in Afghanistan did with the country
- which effect the war has – especially on kids
- which wishes children have
- what kids play in Afghanistan at the moment
