English narration; spoken Pushto with English voice-overs.
This documentary traces the history of the Taliban from its rise to power in 1994 to its dominance over the Afghan population. Through interviews with Afghan civilians and refugees this program examines the ideology and objectives of this militant Islamic organization and the tactics they use that often violate human rights and are contrary to the beliefs of many who follow the Islamic religion.
