The Fixer – the taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi

“The Fixer – the taking of Ajmal Naqshbandi”, by Ian Olds

Screened on 14 April 2010

Runtime: 84′

This intense film by Ian Olds takes us right to the frontline of war reporting. Ajmal Naqshbandi is a young journalist and translator regarded as Afghanistan’s best fixer. His work includes facilitating interviews with Taliban fighters. Just how dangerous this work actually is becomes clear when he and an Italian reporter are taken captive Chilling footage of the abduction and improvised interviews with Taliban members – who suspect every journalist of espionage – clearly document just what war reporters go through in Afghanistan.

The film was followed by a Q&A session with journalist Alain Lallemand (Le Soir).
