Afghanistan has been cast with the role of the antagonist. But that is far from the truth, it has a gentler side with a rich culture.

There is so much more to Afghanistan than that which is portrayed in the media.

Our impressions have become those of US marines, insurgents and terrorists. But a culture should not be judged by the actions of the minority. There is so much good in the world that is never given the chance to take center stage.

In this short film by Augustin Pictures, Lukas Augustin wanted to show his fiancé the place he grew to love whilst he spent 2 years in Kabul as part of a humanitarian aid organization. The film serves as a tribute to his lost friend, Gayle, who was shot in the streets of Kabul.
