Wali's Friend / Tro Håb Afghanistan: Walis ven

Jens Pedersen (DK, 2013)

Tro Håb Afghanistan: Walis ven (Jens Pedersen, DK, 2013)

When he's not going to school, Wali has to make money, so his family can eat and pay rent. He dreams of becoming an artist, but it's tough when he has to spend most of his time making money. With a girl friend, he walks the streets of Kabul with his scale, because he can't afford to buy gum to sell.

The film is one of five short films in "Faith Hope Afghanistan", a series of portraits of Afghan children in Kabul and the ups and downs of life in the shadow of war.
