[edit] Information

Afghanistan: The Wounded Land Series 1 Looks at six decades of Afghan history through the eyes of those who were there: men and women, warriors and civilians, Afghans and foreigners. Their memories of the golden era under King Zahir Shah, the Soviet occupation, the civil war, the Taliban regime, of 9/11 and its aftermath combine with an unparalleled selection of archive footage. Thus, this mini-series grants new insight into what went tragically wrong in the past, and what future is being hoped for.

[edit] Kingdom

In the 1960s, Afghanistan was made up of a small westernized elite as well as a traditional and poor population. A communist revolution ignited these contradictions. The series begins when there was peace in Afghanistan and the king opened the country to the world. At the time, Kabul looked like a European capital: the best hotels organized beauty pageants and fashion shows. It was a destination for hippies looking for cheap drugs and exotic adventures. But not everyone was comfortable with these changes.

[edit] Jihad

In 1979 the Soviet army entered Afghanistan. In response, the Afghans called for jihad against the wicked invaders.

[edit] Taliban

As the Soviet Union collapsed and the United States turned its attention to Iraq, fighting in Afghanistan continued among various ethnic groups and Mujahideen factions. The war turned into an even more brutal civil war. In the midst of the chaos, a new force emerged: the Taliban. With Pakistan's support, the Taliban was victorious. Under their rule, Afghanistan became the laboratory for a new type of Islamic state and the training ground for Bin Laden's terrorist network.

[edit] Trap

After 9/11 and the overthrow of the Taliban, an international coalition sought to bring peace and democracy to Afghanistan. But this hope was short-lived.
