- Imazighen proverb (via halalboy)
Shahrbanoo (called Shahr by friends) wants to tell a completely different story about Afghanistan from the one you are used to hearing.
Wolf and Sheep will be this - a creative and poetic portrait of the rural community where Shahr grew up. A place where children must work all day but still have a childhood. A place where a wolf wanders around on two legs. Wolf and Sheep will be a film that mixes the realist with the magic in an experimental way.
Wolf and Sheep will be the first art-house film in Afghan cinema - EVER!
Moreover, the film will be a close up of an Afghan society from the point of view of a young female filmmaker. This film is very important for recreating Afghan film culture.
But without your support this film will not happen - so please browse through the amazing rewards and choose your way of support. Thank you!

You have brought only one Alexander into the world ,but every mother in this land has brought an Alexander in the World.”
- Alexander the Great , on a letter to his mother while in current day Afghanistan
When people describe the nature of Afghans,the world warriors is always a Must. A nation that has always been plagued by wars and invasions and yet the courage and bravery of our people never ceases to amaze me. Afghans dont fight for money or resources,they fight for their land, for their people, and for their religion. And thats what makes them undefeated and unconquerable.
If it was a battle of swords, I would’ve fought it
But it’s a battle of fate and so I am awaiting anxiously.
