"Buddha Collapsed Out of Shame" a film directed by Hana Makhmalbaf. The story takes place in modern Afghanistan following the removal of the Taliban and revolves around a 5-year-old Afghan girl who wants to attend a newly opened school. The girl Bakhtay,lives in the caves under the remains of the Buddhas of Bamyan which were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001. Bakhtay becomes obsessed with the idea of going to school but must fight against a society influenced by conditions suffered during the strict Taliban rule including male domination, war, poverty and dire children's was an interesting way to put forward the "problem" afghani people face day after day.however putting it forward from a kids experience was indeed very intelligent.sort of depressing but definetly thought provoking..must watch
