Thomas Erdbrink


In 2021, the Americans and their allies are leaving Afghanistan in a hurry.  While everyone is leaving the country, Thomas Erdbrink decides to go to Kabul for his new docuseries Onze man bij de Taliban. And here’s where the story begins.

On this evening, Thomas talks about his experiences and gives a behind-the-scenes account of his series. How do you film under a regime that Westerners targeted for years? And what preceded the encounters that revealed the traumas of 20 years at war?

Following the West’s departure, the country is now more isolated than ever. What future lies ahead for the Afghans, from the bomber to the principal of the girls' school? Through probing clips, Thomas shows what the (invisible) consequences of war and lost freedom are.

This program is a production of Haagsch College, in collaboration with the VPRO.
