Description:
  Stories from Little Kabul provides a rare look into the everyday lives of Afghan-Americans in Fremont, California, home to the largest community of Afghans in the United States. With an unobtrusive, sympathetic eye for personal stories and details, the director Aisha Jamal, herself a Canadian of Afghan background, documents the struggles and achievements of families who have left Afghanistan often under duress to find new homes in an environment which appeared welcoming to some and alienating to others, but which each has embraced as a place of opportunity and personal reinvention.

In the private settings of their residences and workplaces, a number of Afghan immigrants ranging from teachers and social workers to comedians, painters and actors freely share memories of their homeland, political convictions, anecdotes of their arrival in the West, and their hopes for the future both of their American families and their Afghan motherland.
