the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, taking a photo was a crime. After the
regime fell from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerged and a
photography revolution was born. Now, as foreign troops and media
withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its
journalists. Set in a modern Afghanistan bursting with color and
character, FRAME BY FRAME follows four Afghan photojournalists as they
navigate an emerging and dangerous media landscape – reframing
Afghanistan for the world, and for themselves. Through cinema vérité,
intimate interviews, powerful photojournalism, and never-before-seen
archival footage shot in secret during the Taliban regime, the film
connects audiences with four humans in the pursuit of the truth.
