Survive Afghanistan

Tuesday, January 29, 2013, at 7:00pm

Join us for a screening of Malgorzata Imielska movie "Survive Afghanistan" with the director present.  

Five professional soldiers (one of them a woman) set out for the war in Afghanistan as part of the Polish contingent in NATO. They are to spend 'only half a year' in Afghanistan, yet when they say goodbye to their families they do not realize what is awaiting them. Their stay in a military base in the Ghazni province will be an extreme experience verifying their notion of heroism. The return to the civilian reality will not be easy either, since the war leaves its mark on people and is addictive.
