After decades of war, four Afghan photojournalists face the realities of building a free press in a country left to stand on its own amid the withdrawal of foreign forces. The Wilson Center’s Asia Program is pleased to host the D.C. premiere of Frame by Frame, a film that follows these journalists as they navigate Afghanistan’s dangerous media landscape.

Through cinema vérité, intimate interviews, photojournalism, and never-before-seen archival footage shot in secret during the Taliban regime, Frame by Frame connects audiences with four people fighting to reframe Afghanistan—for themselves and for the world. After the screening, the Wilson Center’s Michael Kugelman moderated a conversation with the film’s two directors.
