The Prince of Nothingwood 15

Fri 12 – Mon 15 Jan


Screening to rave reviews during Director’s Fortnight at Cannes, Sonia Kronlund’s documentary takes as its subject an utterly unique character: Salim Saheen, known as the Ed Wood of Afghanistan.

Saheen has financed, filmed and self-distributed over a hundred features becoming a celebrity and hero in his war-torn homeland.

A testament to both the love of cinema and the DIY spirit, The Prince of Nothingwood is a fascinating slice of little-seen life.

Dir: Sonia Kronlund

Cast: Qurban Ali, Sonia Kronlund
