After decades of war and an oppressive Taliban regime, four
Afghan photojournalists face the realities of building a free
press in a country left to stand on its own – reframing
Afghanistan for the world and for themselves.
When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, taking a photo was a crime.
After the regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press
emerged and a photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign
troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its
own, and so are its journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan
bursting with color and character, FRAME BY FRAME follows four
Afghan photojournalists as they navigate an emerging and dangerous
media landscape – reframing Afghanistan for the world, and
for themselves. Through cinema vérité, intimate interviews,
powerful photojournalism, and never-before-seen archival footage
shot in secret during the Taliban regime, the film connects
audiences with four humans in the pursuit of the truth.
