Chattanooga Film Festival: Nahrani (2021)

In Afghanistan, development aid worker Carina Nowak and a squadron of Bundeswehr — German army soldiers — walk into a trap set by the Taliban. Only she and young soldier Luca survive and they both have to fight to reach their own goals.

Nahrani is a short film produced by students of HFF Munich and the final project of director Simon Pfister. It was shot t in Andalusia with a crew of 35 people from Germany and Spain, with six of those days in a set built for the film Exodus and later reused for Game of Thrones.

It looks gorgeous and way better than you’d ever expect a student film to look whole presenting a story of different goals in the face of the chaos of war.
