Fueled by a passion for filmmaking that transcends war, religious taboos and a complete lack of funding, Salim Shaheen has eked out a 30 year long career in the non-existent Afghan film industry. In this riotously funny documentary we meet this larger-than-life figure in his natural habitat, as he makes action movies on budgets that make Ed Wood look like Michael Bay. An instant audience favourite, NOTHINGWOOD presents us with a vision of Afghanistan in which creativity, community and the love of film triumph over war and poverty.
