Wajma by Barmak Akram


Afeganistão-França | Afghanistan-France



Em Cabul, Mustafa, um garçom, seduz a jovem estudante Wajma. O par começa uma relação, ciente de que estão quebrando algumas regras sociais. Depois que Wajma descobre que está grávida, não está mais tão segura de que Mustafa vai se casar com ela, e a notícia da relação dos dois se espalha. O pai dela terá que escolher entre a preservação da honra da família ou o amor por sua filha.

Prêmio de Melhor Roteiro. Sundance Film Festival. World Dramatic Competition. Montreal 2013

It’s snowing in Kabul, and gregarious waiter Mustafa charms a pretty student named Wajma. The pair begin a clandestine relationship—they’re playful and passionate but ever mindful of the societal rules they are breaking. After Wajma discovers she is pregnant, her certainty that Mustafa will marry her falters, and word of their dalliance gets out. Her father must decide between his culturally held right to uphold family honor and his devotion to his daughter.

Sundance Screenwriting Award. World Cinema Dramatic Competition. Afghan entry for the Oscars 2014.

En Kabul, Mustafa, un camarero, seduce a la joven estudiante Wajma. La pareja comienza una relación, consciente de que están quebrando las estrictas convenciones sociales. Después de que Wajma descubre que está embarazada, ya no está tan segura de que Mustafa se casará con ella. Finalmente su familia se entera de la relación. Su padre tendrá que elegir entre mantener el honor de la familia o el amor por su hija.

BARMAK AKRAM (Afeganistão)

Barmak Akram was born in 1966 in Kabul. He received diplomas from three major art schools in France, including the École nationale supérieure des Beaux Arts. Besides directing several short films and documentaries and two full-length features (Kabuli Kid premiered in 2008 at the Venice Film Festival), Akram is also a musician, songwriter, and composer. He is an autodidact with a deep knowledge of two very different cultures and works between his distinct worlds—Kabul, where he runs his production agency, Kabuli Film, and Paris.
