SYNOPSIS

TRUE WARRIORS is the powerful story of Kabul theatre group AZDAR and their daring play about a suicide bombing. At their premiere in the theatre of the French embassy, a real suicide bomber is in the audience and blows himself up…(all filmed on cell phones!) What is now almost a statistic in every day news all of a sudden becomes very real and all of a sudden we get some understanding of the horrible reality of this. After this shocking incident some of the artists flee to Europe, amongst them world renowned Afghan film director Siddiq Barmak. But most stay in Kabul and stepped up their efforts, moving outside of secured compounds and into the streets, performing risky, political plays completely unprotected. They first resurface together with a play on the public lynching of a woman named Farkhunda in the center of Kabul, which hit the news worldwide in 2015. Their return carries an uplifting message, after all: ART is a true weapon and survives all adversity.
