ABSTRACT
"At Five in the Afternoon" a film by Iranian director Samira Makhmalbaf looks at the situation of women in post-invasion Afghanistan. The film takes place two years after the country's invasion and the overthrow of the hated religious regime of the Taliban. In this atmosphere of relative freedom a 20 year-old woman, Nogreh, attends a local school nurturing a dream of one day becoming Afghanistan's first female head of state. But despite the film's playful opening, this is not a portrait of a country joyfully embracing its newly found freedom but rather a fairly bleak look at hopes dashed and dreams shattered.
