I'm a freelance video journalist based in Kabul, Afghanistan.
I learned about the D-Word through reading an article about the very talented James Longley.
Some of my work can be seen here (short demo reel)

A warm welcome, Elissa and Buhoro. Elissa, we saved you the trouble by upgrading you to "professional" status. Figured anyone who shoots with a combat helmet on deserves it.

Thank you, Doug– I've seen trailer for The Kids Grow Up and 51 Birch Street, but yet to see both films in entirety and very much want to. Both look really compelling. Great to be a part of this community with so many talented people like yourself!

(Regarding the combat helmet) Haha! Indeed Doug!

Welcome Elissa, I will view your work when I get home. VIMEO is blocked off in my office. There are tons of talented doc filmmakers that are part of the D-word, and we welcome one more (with a bad-ass headwear too)!

Hoping to see more interesting works from Kabul. Keep making them!

Hey all!

It's nice to be here. I stumbled in on this website while checking out an article about the Hot-docs pitch forum. This looks like a great site to discuss and debate docs and all of the methods and practices that come along with it. Hope you are all well, and working on exciting projects! I've been working on a documentary for the past 4 years. It chronicles two school years at a small charter school that teaches refugee children alongside local American kids. You can check out the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/31798296

Looking forward to the discussion!

Best,
Adam
