'Return of the Nightingales' (2012), a new film by Professor John Baily

1.00pm

Public

Location: Room AG09, College Building, City University London, London, EC1V 4PB

Ethnomusicologist and film-maker John Baily visits the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, a newly-established co-educational vocational music school in Kabul that teaches Afghan, Indian and Western music.

Made in the observational cinema style of the NFTS, the film provides a lyrical portrayal of the school's activities, with an emphasis on the teaching, rehearsal and performance of music, building up to a performance of Ravel's Bolero for a visit by the Swedish Ambassador. The film projects a very positive image of young people in Afghanistan today, challenging the usual negative stereotypes favoured by western media.
