Oppression of Hazara in Afghanistan

As a child, Zareen Taj witnessed the Soviet invasion and occupation of her country and the brutal oppression and persecution of her people by the hands of the Taliban.

After two decades of absence, Zareen returned to Afghanistan for a two month video documentary journey that she organized and led. She brought back over 40 hours of video tapes, 700 photographs and 20 hours of cassette recordings; parts of which are included in her video here.

This video is only part of Zareen’s work as she hopes to complete a feature-length documentary.
