a documentary film


The story of the rock-n-roll icon of Afghanistan who changed the country, and the world -  forever.


ZAHIR is a feature documentary film which explores the extraordinary life and legacy of Ahmad Zahir.


He came to the stage in a time when women in Kabul wore mini-skirts, foreigners flocked to Afghanistan on the “hippie trail,” and progressive change swept the country. Ahmad Zahir rocketed to stardom in the 60s and 70s, his voice capturing the soul of an entire generation. No other icon in Afghan history can allow us to more deeply explore a country that could have been, and unravel what a progressive legacy means for the world today.
