Screening: Kandahar Break ... Independent film making at it's best.

The Philadelphia independent Film festival is proud to have this movie as an official submission and now as an official selection. Directed by David Whitney. With Shaun Dooley, Dean Andrews, Rasheed Naz.

I truly compelling story of money, politics, love, betrayal, and war. This sotory is based on a true story. We could not help but feel the tension and panic as a team of British mine clearing engineers working for the Taliban navigate their way through the streets of Kandahar and home after crossing the local warlord.

This story grips you into seeing the conflict, pre 9/11, as nothing short of money and ultimatly revenge. The acting is so good that it worried us that we were watching a documentary film. We had no idea of the story prior to popping this into the screening room and giving it a go ...

Kudos to David Whitney and team for such a gripping movie.

See you at the festival,
