Losing Cinema Park: Tears over demolition of Kabul’s iconic cinema

Cinema Park, a 70-year old cinema hall in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, was demolished despite widespread opposition by Afghan artists, cultural activist and filmmakers.

On Twitter, a trend with the caption “#Don’t_destroy_cinema_park” became viral in Afghanistan.

Film director Sahraa Karimi, the first woman to head Afghanistan’s state film company and archive, tells BBC Monitoring why she fought to stop Cinema Park’s demolition.
