shows some interesting footage

Director: Richard Stanley

Voice of the Moon is one of a series of documentaries made by South African Richard Stanley. It comes more or less as an extra with two other documentaries in the Dust Devil DVD set. It was made in the late 80's during the Russian invasion of Afghanistan showing the struggles of the people in this war torn country. We are shown the reaction of the people after the defeat of the Soviets. The Taliban was formed during this time and Stanley shows footage of them. This documentary lacks a narration. Consequently, I didn't always know for sure what was going on. What one is seeing is behind the scenes footage of the land and its people set to a beautiful music score.
