Director: Shahrbanoo Sadat
2011. Afghanistan

A world in 10 minutes. We start by identifying sounds. The progress of an Afghan girl’s day, told in sound and image as she collects everyday objects/votes from her neighbors. Jewels, clothes, weapons.

Yeke Varune was also selected for la Quinzaine des Réalisateurs | Directors’ Fortnight, Festival de Cannes 2011.

Shahrbanoo Sadat is a graduate of Ateliers Varan, Kabul, where she made her first short film, A Smile for Life. She was picked for the Cinéfondation–Festival de Cannes as a resident filmmaker and is now working on her first feature film.
