There is “the danger of a single story” about the large, diverse and complicated country Afghanistan and its people. Short video clips give insights into life in Afghanistan, which otherwise receive little attention, but are no less real. War and peace, wealth and poverty, joy and sorrow, hope and despair are not mutually exclusive, but are often interwoven. To understand a country and a culture requires a wealth of information and stories. It takes more than a single story about a country or a person to paint an authentic picture.
