Karimi Vows To Transform Afghan Film

Sahraa Karimi, filmmaker, and director, who was last month appointed as the first female General Director of Afghan Film, the country’s state-run film production company, through a merit-based process conducted at the Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission says that she is committed to giving a new life to the production company. 
 
Karimi made the remarks during the 51st anniversary of the production in Kabul on Thursday with the participation of prominent cinema artists, filmmakers, and artists. 
 
Karimi and other officials also hailed the contribution of those who made efforts to protect the assets of the company during difficult times. 
 
“This (Afghan Film) was an institution where people were sitting at the corner of their offices,” said Karimi. “Today we honored those who were working behind the scene and spent their lifetime here.”
 
“We have suffered the lashes of the Taliban and passed through a dark era,” said  Yasmin Yarmal, an artist. 
 
Afghan film was established in 1968 but so far it has not done a considerable activity due to the four decades of the war in the country.
