In 1964, when Bob Dylan released ‘Times are a changin’ the song helped to start a youth revolution. 50 years later the youth of Jalalabad have had enough gloom and doom and want to use their creativity to bring freedom and joy. Their first step was to rename Jalalabad - 'Love City', by parading a billboard through the streets proclaiming it a place of love and no morewar. This is the beginning of anamazingly joyous rideas thegroup attempts to taketheir Cinema Circus to the,notoriouslymilitant,Tora Bora mountains. Along the way a 19 year oldactor becomes the first female director of a Pashtun film, a 9 year old girl, Medina becomes a movie star and a young actor tries to use his art to convince th efamily of the girl he loves, to agree to their wedding. Regularly the group encounters the forces of darkness, corruption and ignorance but their optimism sees them safely through.
Love City is a feel good movie which will reaffirm your hope for Afghanistan and that Love can succeed where war fails.
