The Forbidden Reel documents the cinemas of Kabul--entertainment venues that had been banned under the Taliban but which have sputtered back to life since the US invasion 12 years ago. The Forbidden Reel provides an alternative narrative to life in this violence-plagued city where going to the movies, for many, is an escape from the harsh reality that lies outside.
