Kabul (BNA) 29 December is coincident with the International Cinema Day, cinema in Afghanistan has had many ups and downs in the last years and decades.
BNA reporter commenting on the issue writes, there are most narratives about the position and beginning of cinema art in Afghanistan, some believe that cinema introduced by Amir Habibullah in the 1920s and some others claimed that in 1922 late king Amanullah imported a cinema projector for the first time in Afghanistan after his trip to Europa.
Based in the reports, cinema has long history in Afghanistan, but the art such as other parts of Afghans’ life have caused by war in the country.
In the beginning cinema had significant growth and cinema was included news from the government activities and fewer documentaries were made. Cinema was political and an instrument in the hand of government ruling circles.
Afghan cinema development and many films including Rabia Balkhi, Mardara Qawl Ast directed by Saeed Orokzai (1979), De Kondi Zoy and Oqab had played.
But unfortunately, during the Taliban rule, art of cinema and theatre like other artistic fields and cultural foundations were collapsed and devastated in Afghanistan.
After the fall of the Taliban in 2001 and the establishment of a transitional government, once again Afghan cinema returned from the dead, dozens films featured by Afghan filmmakers, such as Osam that won a golden gold award as best foreign language film and “Hawa, Maryam, Ayesha” another film made by Sahraa Karimi chairperson of Afghan Film screened in several international cinemas and find way in global competitions.
Cinema is the most effective tool that can change the world, but unfortunately it is used for different purposes because it is naturally included in our egoism.
So, we believe that if opportunities have provide and there were no imposed war and violence, we will witness of significant progress in every arenas, particular in cinema and theater art.
We hope that this is what will eventually happen and that this instrument will become noble, we hope that best films produce by Afghan filmmakers and our cinemas screen only showcases films made by Afghans.
Then we will really celebrate cinema day in our country.
