See You Bet Your Life: Secret Word.
Description: In the broken cityscape of Kabul, Afghanistan, amid the dust and rubble of war, Westerners and Afghans adjust to the uncertain chances of peace. "Kabul Transit" shuttles through the broken roads of the city, moving between public zone and private, listening in on conversations, posing questions, probing the darker alleys mainstream media avoids.

Rejecting the usual device of narration and portraiture, the movie asks the viewer to experience Kabul as a newly arrived visitor would-- with a freshness born of apprehension on finding oneself in a zone that is at once hauntingly strange and altogether familiar.
