CMES 2013 Spring Film Series - 'War and Love in Kabul'

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

The Center for Middle Eastern Studies 2013 Spring Film Series prestents the movie "War and Love in Kabul."

Hossein and Shaima have loved each other since childhood. As teenagers, they were separated by war. Now, they meet again in Kabul in the 1990s. Poverty forced Hossein to fight in the war. A shell splinter leaves him a paraplegic. Shortly afterward, Shaima is sold into marriage to a man 40 years her senior. Despite the fact that Shaima is with child, her father brings her back into the constraining patriarchal fold as her husband never paid her dowry in full. These complex circumstances do not prevent these two lovers from seeing each other, even though this means going against their families' rules and living in fear of revenge.
