Seeds of the Past

Aisha Jamal, Canada, 2016, 7 min, in English and Pashtun with English Subtitles
Toronto Premiere


Influenced by their love of the gardens of Afghanistan, the Jamals have turned the backyard of their Canadian home into a vibrant link to their past. Through their love for gardening and nostalgia for their homeland they create a beautiful oasis, where each flower and shrub evoke a memory; a closeness to history, family, childhood and homeland.
