The Taliban Are In Control
25 February 2020 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Reminded me of the movie "Afghan Cycles" "The Taliban came with forced marriages, underage marriages, & honor killings; a girl could be killed just for riding a bicycle." I see the Taliban as playing our current president (USA), who seems not to support women's rights, and democratic foundations whether w/the Kurds or Afghans. The Taliban pursue to kill an Afghan filmmaker, his wife & two daughters. This doc follows them as they drive, walk, hide and are detained for three years as they journey for freedom & safety in Europe.
