‘The land of the enlightened’ to screen at Rotterdam Film Festival January 13, 2016

Following on from the announcement that it will make its world premier at Sundance this month, it’s just been announced that The land of the enlightened will screen at the International Film Festival Rotterdam (Jan 27-Feb 7)

The documentary, directed by Pieter-Jan De Pue,  charts ‘the complex Afghani war economy told through the eyes of the children who have found themselves caught up in the on-going American occupation.’

Shot on 35mm film, full picture post on The land of the Enlightened was completed here at Screen Scene, where it was graded by Donal O’Kane. Warren Dowling was the finishing editor on the film, which recieved its TV edit from our very own Martha Meyler.
