The Prince of Nothingwood (Nothingwood), dir. Sonia Kronlund, France / Germany 2021, 85 min., Dari, English and French with English subtitles, 15  



French radio documentarist and producer Sonia Kronlund’s touching and often hilarious directorial debut screened to much acclaim at the 2017 Festival de Cannes. Its subject is Salim Shaheen, the Ed Wood of Afghanistan, witnessed in his element during a week of filming on his latest feature. A total force of nature, Shaheen has managed to make, star-in and self-distribute no fewer than 110 films over the past thirty years, despite the country’s ongoing war. 

Bolstered by a cast of warm, flamboyant characters and Kronlund’s wealth of experience – she has been visiting and reporting from Afghanistan as a radio journalist for over 15 years – The Prince of Nothingwood is a crowd-pleasing love letter to film making, anchored by its exuberant and extraordinary protagonist.
