The Buddhas of Mes Aynak

The Buddhas of Mes Aynak
The Cultural Treasure We Will Never Know
Special Advance Screening

Brent E. Huffman’s documentary follows archaeologists from around the world as they fight to save a 2,600-year-old Buddhist city in Afghanistan from imminent destruction by a Chinese copper mining company. Under threat from the local Taliban as well as pressure from the mining consortium, the archaeologists confront great risk in seeking to document one of the great centers of the Silk Road before it is razed and erased from memory.

 Co-presented by Institute for the Study of the Ancient World
