Angels Are Made of Light follows students and teachers at a school in an old neighborhood of Kabul that is slowly rebuilding from past conflicts. Interweaving the modern history of Afghanistan with present-day portraits, the film offers an intimate and nuanced vision of a society living in the shadow of war.
"Stirring and gorgeous." — Nick Schager, Variety
"A vivid portrait of daily life in Kabul and a rich look into childhood. Probing and visually inventive. Finds a resilience among the most vulnerable of its characters." — David D'Arcy, Screen Daily
“A beautiful movie.” — Christopher Reed, Hammer to Nail
"A superlative documentary. A powerful, thrillingly told rumination of life in wartime." — Josh Brunsting, Criterion Cast
