"Our man with the Taliban"

  • Date: 27 May 20:15
  • Location: Koninklijke Schouwburg

In 2021, the Americans and their allies are leaving Afghanistan headlong. While everyone is leaving the country, Thomas Erdbrink decides precisely to go to Kabul for his new docuseries Our Man with the Taliban. Because the story is just beginning.

On this evening, Thomas talks about his experiences and gives a look behind the scenes following his series. How do you film under a regime that saw Westerners as targets for years? And what preceded the encounters that unflinchingly portrayed the traumas of 20 years of war?

After the Western departure, the country is more isolated than ever. What future is there for Afghans, from bomber to head girl's school? On the basis of penetrating fragments, Thomas will show you the (invisible) consequences of war and lost freedom.

This program is a production of Haagsch College, in cooperation with the VPRO.

Please be advised that this event is in Dutch.
