After living in Afghanistan for seven years and immersing himself in the local underground circuit, Australian journalist Travis Beard picks up his camera and starts shooting his film about District Unknown, Afghanistan’s first metal band.

“RocKabul” features never-before-seen footage of Kabul and the city’s party scene – a scene at odds with an extremely conservative society. The film follows as District Unknown becomes an enemy in the eyes of the authorities – because their music brings young Afghans into contact with the expat community and an international audience. Is love of country, band, and family stronger than the desire for a more normal life abroad?

ROCKABUL, Travis Beard, Afghanistan/Australia/Bosnia and Herzegovina/United Kingdom 2018, 86′.
