Fifteen-year-old Kabuli street kid Qodrat gets by in 1980s Soviet-controlled Afghanistan selling movie tickets on the black market. But his illegal hustle sparks the attention of the police, who remand him to a public orphanage. Alternating between a harsh outside reality ruled by bullies and an encroaching Muhijadeen and Quodra’s rich inner world of Bollywood fantasy, this poignant coming-of-age drama is a sequel to Sadat’s 2016 Festival favorite Wolf and Sheep.
“The Orphanage is a beautifully photographed, quietly methodical portrait of 1989 Kabul.”
