Scene from “Life After War/A House For Haji Baba”
May 24, 2009
Luminant director Brian Knappenberger follows the story of NPR reporter-turned humanitarian worker, Sarah Chayes. Sarah gave up her job at NPR after the initial fighting in Afghanistan in 2001 to help rebuild a village destroyed in the war. This is the story of what it takes to rebuild one house. Here, Sarah tries to convince governor Gul Agha Shirzai to release the hold he has on a local quarry, so she can buy the stone she needs to build.
