A film shot in a country put down by war, director Hashmatullah
Khan dares to do what he believes in. A love story blossoms in the
backdrops of terrorism in the mountainous terrains of
Spring of Hope is a tale of two lovers who first felt
the sparks of love in a college. The two are innocently looking
forward for their own Spring of Hope but unfortunately
these hopes are soon shattered by the political crisis which spans
the next decades in the country.
Despair replaces their hope and anguish, disillusionment and
disappointment overcomes their youthful dreams which reflect the
actual anguish and misery the Afghan people have suffered.
The trailer looks promising with ample doses of love and war.
The beautiful locales of Afghanistan are magnificently captured on
camera and war definitely couldn't kill its natural beauty.
Written, produced, directed and starring Hashmatullah Khan, this
film was selected at many international festivals including Locarno
