"Stone Silence" - Production data and crew

Stone Silence

A 25-year old woman suspected of adultery was killed in Spingul village in the high mountains of northern Afghanistan. Information, which spread all over the world on April 23rd, 2005, has become the incipience of this story. The documentary presents the history of two lovers in the eyes of witnesses, reconstructing the tragic occurrence. The author of the film tries to answer what happened on the day of Amina’s death. Amina was killed in circumstances that have been described in varying versions. The investigation defends a thesis that the main cause of the death was heart attack. The main characters of the movie present totally different approaches to the event. The film shows how difficult it is for outsiders to understand the Muslim hierarchy of values. A world, in which nothing is worth less than man’s life.
