Afghanistan’s official submission as Best Foreign Film for the 2011 Academy Awards™

After the Taliban is routed from Afghanistan in early 2001, the Mansouri family seizes a new window of freedom by opening a restaurant called “The Poet’s Corner”, with an open microphone and an inviting platform for all to read poetry and tell their stories. This newfound hope proves to be fleeting as they struggle to maintain their way of life when encountering very real threats from lingering factions of the Taliban.Winner of the Golden Lion Cub at the 2010 Venice Film Festival.
