2010 Award
Families of Afghanistan
( Master Communications $29.99 Score: )

One of a series of films that introduce children to families from distant lands. Told by a 12 and 13-year girls, one in Kabul, an urban setting; the other in a rural village. In both instances, the chores each are expected to do, the schools they attend, and their day to day lives present a real contrast to each other and an even more dramatic contrast to the lives of young American viewers. This feels more like a school film than home entertainment, yet, the stories here are interesting. Given the fact that so many young people have family and friends who are serving in Afghanistan and it is so much in the news, this may well be a film worth sharing. Although the film makers were no allowed to film schools the children attended or many street scenes, the information and material they did film will likely interest young viewers who are curious about this troubled and troubling place where it seems war never ends. They say 5 & up, we'd say this is more appropriate for 7 & up.
