As Afghanistan teeters on an unpredictable future, A Flickering Truth unwraps the world of three dreamers and 8000 hours of film covered by the dust of 100 years of war. Can these men who risked their lives to protect this vessel of culture, restore the record of Afghanistan's colourful and diverse past? And what surprises will emerge from the cloak of time? In A Flickering Truth, we meet the dedicated cinephiles who are now excavating, preserving, and restoring thousands of hours of film footage, both drama and documentary, from Afghanistan's cinematic past. Selected for the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals 2015, A Flickering Truth is a fascinating documentary about the urgency and necessity of film preservation.
