Les âmes rebelles (Rebellious souls) ; A lively and poetic tribute to a country and its people
It’s a powerful story that talks about fidelity and friendship, two words that go well together. Reza’s friendship with Massoud, a resistant, and Massoud’s fidelity to his people and his country, Afghanistan. Throughout the pages and images, the shadows of past wars linger, but green landscapes and poetry bring traces of life that gradually regain their strength. Atiq Rahimi’s French and Persian texts unfold along side Reza’s photographs creating one dialogue woven between the two.
