Short - Comedy | 14m - Don’t miss this hillarious short by TJ Power starring Andy Lee that won the Screener’s Choice and Best Script award at the Heart of Gold International Short Film Festival.

JIRGA

An Australian man arrives in Kabul and hires a taxi driver to take him into Kandahah province.  He is an ex-soldier who accidentally killed a civilian while on duty and is determined to make amends.  After travails that include an encounter with a group of Taliban he reaches the village and places himself at the mercy of the local system of justice (the ‘jirga’). The majestic landscape is beautifully filmed despite the dangers and difficulties faced by the small team who ventured into Afghanistan to make this film.  Chosen as Australia’s submission for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Picture, Jirga provides insights into a country which, despite our involvement, is still little understood.
