State of the TalibStreaming Video - 2012
This documentary, filmed in early 2001, takes viewers to the villages of Afghanistan to explore Taliban ideology and examine life under Taliban rule. After years of anarchy, the promise of a pure Islamic government seemed attractive to many, but the regime's brutal abuse of basic human rights has changed the lives of the Afghan people for the worse. The film also looks at Afghanistan's relations with Pakistan, from where the Taliban draw much support, and resistance to the Taliban's oppressive regime from Iran and other Muslim countries.
