Inspired by our partnership with Canadian Stage, presenting The Elements of Story: Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, Blink and You’ll Miss Us is an original series of micro-film poems by Afghan and Canadian filmmakers featuring bursts of exquisite poetry. These films will be both an international conversation and a unique artistic collaboration. Filmed in Kabul and Toronto from 1 to 15 October, 2020, each micro-film then had to be completed, using only a smartphone, within 18 hours, eliciting spontaneous and visceral responses to the poetry.

Poems by Aria Aber
Directed by Shahrbanoo Sadat & Baqir Tawakoli
Produced by Golden Hour Productions

Commissioned in 2020 by Canadian Stage and Toronto International Festival of Authors as part of the Elements of Story: Khaled Hosseini, exploring the captivating bestselling novel A Thousand Splendid Suns.

We extend our deepest gratitude for the exceptional generosity of Alexandra and Charles Baillie.
