Afghanistan 2001 : alongside General Massoud, Mamour Hasan stands up against the Talibans, supporting the occidental intervention and the new governement. As a convinced democrate, he reintegrates « moderate and repentant » Talibans in his village. Ten years later, the lord of war pays the consequences of his generosity and commitment. Less powerful and almost without any money, he is now not only facing the threat of the Talibans, but also of his own family opposed to the presence of the NATO and the US ARMY in their country. Pascale Bourgaux has followed Mamour Hasan over 10 years and shows us the concrete consequences of a so-called ‘preventive’ war that broke out one day in Afghanistan.
