Dr Sarmast’s Music School

The inspiring story of musicologist Dr. Ahmad Sarmast's return to Kabul after 15 years in exile to reopen an old music school, previously closed down by Muslim extremists in 1992. Tony Stevens' masterful edit is complemented by Peter Pilley's skillful colour grade, which brings out the energy of the busy streets of Afghanistan. Dr Sarmast's Music School has five AACTA Award nominations in 2013 including Best Feature Length Documentary.
