      Leah Pickett Chicago Reader Beautiful despite its ravages, somehow still glimmering with hope. Aug 10, 2019 Full Review Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times Longley... has an almost magical ability to envelope us in other realities. He does it via the poetry of his imagery as well as a gift for focused illumination that creates empathetic portraits of people who are both ordinary and intensely involving. Aug 8, 2019 Full Review Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune One boy dares to imagine Kabul, and his own life, out from under the presence of both the Americans as well as the Taliban. It's a dream captured in many different shades by a very fine film. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 7, 2019 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice An engaging documentary about Afghanistan's youth that activates our empathy. Rated: 5/5 Dec 21, 2019 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Despite all the struggles they face and the fact that this may be only a temporary peace, the children featured here inspire a sense of hope. [James] Longley teases out their worries but also makes us aware of their driving will. Rated: 4.5/5 Dec 2, 2019 Full Review Pat Mullen Cinemablographer The film is almost emotionally exhausting as it honours the children's stories and reflects their daily lives.
