Saturday, Apr. 30: Afghanistan in Times of Peace: Painted Trucks
Location: Penn Museum, Rainey Auditorium, 3260 South Street
Time: 3 PM
Afghanistan has been in various states of war for centuries, and war has become a feature of material culture. This movie is about the beautiful truck-decorating tradition of Afghanistan, and was made by Judith and Stanley Hallett during peacetime in 1971-72, as they and their crew rode a truck from Kabul to Bamiyan. The viewer will also glimpse the famous Bamiyan Buddha sculptures as they looked before they were detonated by the Taliban. The filmmakers note that this film has become a cult favorite in the Afghan community, which has grown nostalgic for their country as it was during the best of times. The filmmakers will be present at the screening to answer questions about the film. The screening is FREE with MUSEUM ADMISSION. And it is FREE FOR MEMBERS and FULL-TIME STUDENTS WITH a PENN ID.
