Synopsis:
The latest film by internationally acclaimed young Iranian director Samira Makhmalbaf is the first to be made in Afghanistan following the fall of the Taliban regime. Set in the ruined city of Kabul, it tells the story of Noqreh, a young woman eager to take advantage of the new freedoms and opportunities afforded to women. Despite her father's wishes that she receive only a traditional religious education, Noqreh also attends a secular school for girls, where she is inspired by the idea of becoming Afghanistan's first woman President. But the harsh reality of survival in a country devastated by war threaten her dreams and aspirations.
A touching and resonant analysis of the struggle faced by Afghan women. 'At Five In The Afternoon' is a poetic and compelling combination of realist drama and striking imagery and Makhmalbaf's most ambitious film to date.
