Synopsis:
A group of Kuchi children are living in a minefield around Bagram airfield. They dig out anti-personal mines in order to sell the explosives to child workers mining in a Lappis Lazulli mine. The trajectory of the blue precious stones goes towards Tajikistan and China, through an area controlled by child soldiers. When they are not waging their own mini-wars in the daily madness of life in Afghanistan, the children are fleeing away in their personal fantasies and dreams ... “The Land of the Enlightened” is an ambitious feature documentary by a young director with a huge passion for the Afghan people and its country. The film has been documented and researched by the director through multiple visits and photo shoots.
