REVIEWS

“Aboozar Amini makes a striking debut with his observational portrait of life in reconstruction in Afghanistan.” – Arlin Golden, Film Inquiry

“The shadow of death hangs heavy over Aboozar Amini’s feature debut “Kabul, City in the Wind”, and yet, paradoxically, it is a film that celebrates life and even marks the birth of a significant new talent.” – Damon Wise, Variety
