Afghanistan [electronic resource]: Breaking Point

In this program from Iran's PressTV, a news crew travels throughout Afghanistan to learn first-hand how people there feel about the foreign presence in their country. The journalists find anger and frustration in Kandahar, much of it directed against the Americans, who they blame for dividing the loyalties of Afghan tribes. In Kabul the immediate concern is not foreign policy, but trying to feed families as aid shipments are diverted by corrupt middlemen. And while some in Jalalabad express gratitude towards the countries that have arrived to help, one citizen sums up the feelings of many: "They haven't come here to rebuild Afghanistan, they have come to exploit it.

Afghanistan, Palestine, Somalia [electronic resource]: Wars

For eighty-year-old Uri, Israel's 1948 War of Independence has brought nothing but glory. He's considered a legend in his hometown on the volatile Israel/Lebanon border, and young recruits hang on his every word. By contrast, Qahir's prospects for a fulfilling life look dim. Although he lost his legs to a Kabul landmine, he works so that his brothers can attend school, but has given up hope of starting a family of his own. And in Somalia, Madguud has watched warfare ravish his country physically and emotionally - the place where he grew up is now described as "the city of the walking dead." This documentary explores the impact of war on daily life through the insights and experiences of these three men, whose countries have endured some of the longest conflicts in history.
