"TALIBAN COUNTRY"

Monday, March 7th, 7 pm
New College Cultural Center, 766 Valencia St, SF

In May/June 2004, Walkley-award winning investigative reporter Carmela Baranowska was embedded with U.S. Marines in one of the most dangerous and remote parts of Afghanistan, beyond the reach of UN and aid agencies.

Frustrated by the limitations imposed on what she could report, Baranowska decided to travel back to Oruzgon Province independently of the U.S. Marines and Afghan militia that she had journeyed with up to that point. Western media outlets reported her kidnapping by the Taliban; a 'fact' the documentary dispels.

More importantly, Baranowska's footage offers disturbing first-person accounts of the treatment being dealt Afghans by U.S. Marines in the war on terror and has led to the opening of two U.S. military investigations. For more info on the film visit http://www.talibancountry.com

“She went back, unescorted, into Taliban country and got quite a different story of perfidy and brutality. That's courage and determination, and perhaps a lot of luck that she got out alive.”
— The Australian
