The Network was well-received at Austin's SXSW Film Festival. The film
offers a slim ray of light into the ugly mess that the United States is
leaving behind in Afghanistan. Amidst all of the chaos or war, the drug
trade, and oppression. The Network offers the story of a brave group of
Afghans and expatriates who are trying to begin a process of building a
new Afghanistan by creating the country's first free media. In the days
after the fall of the Taliban in 2001, they began with radio and
eventually expanded to develop Afghanistan's largest TV Network NOLA
TV. In a country with a very high rate of illiteracy, television can be
a particularly powerful social force. The film offers a behind-the-
scenes look at the difficulty of training a new generation of
professionals to produce news and entertaining programming. The film
makes clear that NOLA TV has become a portal for bringing positive
social attitudes and modern ideas to a country that has been torn apart
by violence and fundamentalism for decades.
While the film does point to many flaws in Afghan society, it never
seems to be self-critical about NOLA's own work. The vast majority of
the interviews are with NOLA's own staff with only very few voices from
the outside looking in. The film feels like one where director Eva
Orner has become too close to her subject. For example, they admit that
they are producing cop shows that encourage Afghanis to respect and
obey the police force. But that force is widely known to be highly
corrupt. Does such a message truly benefit Afghanistan? The Network
certainly provides a useful lens to expose Westerners to some of the
problems of modern day Afghanistan and offers a somewhat positive angle
on an otherwise bleak landscape where so much of the news seems
negative. Still a more self-critical examination might have
strengthened the portrait.
