"Hypnotic, playful and chillingly austere, the hybrid documentary blends romance and raw realism" - Screen International. "Powerfully intimate and absolutely stunning" - Indiewire. De Pue's Afghanistan-centred film "The Land of the Enlightened" won several prestigious awards, such as Best Photography at the Sundance Film Festival, and provided a completely new and unique perspective on one of the hotbeds of our world. Filmmaker and photographer Pieter-Jan De Pue spent most of eight years in Afghanistan. There he worked on his award-winning film "The Land of the Enlightened". In The Kings of Afghanistan he has collected together his most compelling photographs from his time in Afghanistan, focusing on children in survival mode. Their surprising resilience and zest paint a picture of hope for the future.
