Honeymoon in Kabul (Afghanistan Documentary) – Real Stories
Honeymoon in Kabul is an inspirational documentary which follows newly weds, midwife Maggie Haertsch and clown medical professional Jean Paul Bell, on their whirlwind mission to take medical aid and humour to the kids of Kabul. Maggie and Jean Paul arrive in Kabul amidst riots and uncover that their valuable cargo of advanced health-related gear is strewn over a dirty hospital floor, useless in a nation where electrical energy is unreliable and thousands of youngsters are dying of malnutrition and dysentery every single year.
The film explores the responsibility and energy of the person to make positive change in society, and the politics of help and charity, asking whether or not well-intentioned amateurs can really make any difference in a country racked with troubles and visiting a single of Afghanistan’s most respected political activists and parliamentarians. As Jean Paul entertains gun-wielding Afghans, nervous American soldiers, and sick youngsters, the film also investigates the function of humour in the face of adversity and its possible to unify and transcend race, class and culture.
Lucky to leave Afghanistan alive, Maggie and Jean Paul take us on a hair-raising and fascinating journey which shows that the delivery of aid in Afghanistan is as complicated and delicate as any second marriage.
