Insightful and often chilling
24 September 2001 | by blueharvSee all my reviews

Beneath the Veil is a very chilling and insightful peek into the mysterious land of Afghanistan. Cassian Harrison puts herself at increasingly greater risk to obtain footage and information pertaining to the secret lives of the people living under the oppression of the Taliban.

What makes this documentary even more interesting is that it screened in Australia on the ABC's Four Corners the very day before the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks.

This is very compelling film and one which demonstrates the best that documentaries can be.
