Oh Dear Sara
A film-exploration of the journey to discover Sara Bahai, the first female taxi driver in Afghanistan. The preconceived character of Sara is intensively deconstructed throughout the narrative. The camera slowly settles down to portrait this encounter resulting into a filmed self-storytelling of Sara Bahai’s life through the juncture of her, the camera, and an interview. Oh Dear Sara is a ZOOM IN into the skin of Sara. After landing into a non-controlled spaced like Afghanistan, the preconceived idea of Sara the taxi driver banished, and the lost crew starts going into the sweats, through the wrinkles, between empty eyes...while strident mobiles at night sound.
