Saving Mes Ayank had a sold out screening at the San Franscisco Green Film Festival this past Saturday! Thank you to everyone that joined the meaningful occasion. The composer of the film, Homayoun Sahki, received warm welcome from the crowd along with the director, Brent E. Huffman.
The following Tuesday, however, troubling news came from Kabul: Taliban assault that left at least 28 dead, over 320 injured.
From what director Huffman was able to gather, none of the archaeologists and those involved in the film is reported to have been impacted by this assault. There is now only a skeleton crew working in Mes Aynak. There are still reports and rumors of looting. The Minister of Mines has been fired due to corruption in the mining industry. The seat currently remains empty - a source of instability over the archaeological efforts in Mes Aynak.
We appreciate all your support and welcome any suggestions for how we can further galvanize the global community to help Mes Aynak receive proper preservation efforts. Please contact us here to request screenings in your area. We appreciate you!
