CineCulture presents “Frame by Frame” at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20, in the Peters Education Center Auditorium at the Student Recreation Center (5010 N. Woodrow Ave.).

After decades of war and an oppressive Taliban regime, four Afghan photojournalists face the realities of building a free press in a country left to stand on its own. Under Taliban rule it was a crime to take a photo.

After the Taliban fall from power in 2001, a fledgling free press emerges and a photography revolution is born. Now, as foreign troops and media withdraw, Afghanistan is left to stand on its own, and so are its journalists.

Set in 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 photojournalists in the pursuit of the truth.

Farzana Wahidy, a photographer featured in the film, will lead the post-screening discussion. This presentation of the film is co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Design, the Center for Creativity and the Arts, Asian Pacific Islander Programs and Services, the Department of Communication and the Cross Cultural and Gender Center.

“Frame by Frame” is not yet rated, 85 minutes in length and will be presented in Dari and English with English subtitles. All CineCulture events screened on campus are free and open to the public. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Fridays. INFO: Dr. Mary Husain at mhusain@csufresno.edu or visit the CineCulture website. See original press release.
