Jirga: Film Screening and Discussion

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Jirga
An ex-soldier returns to Afghanistan to find the family of a civilian he accidentally killed during the war. Seeking forgiveness, he puts his life in the hands of the village justice system — the jirga.  Shot in Afghanistan, director Benjamin Gilmour filmed in Taliban-controlled regions of Afghanistan, using some non-actors, a few being former members of the Taliban itself.
