Video: In the year 2001, after the US invaded Afghanistan and toppled the Taliban, a Taliban uprising rocked the country, with thousands of Taliban fighters killed.
In a film called The Taliban: Inside the War, director James Ellroy tells the story of one young woman in the village of Kalaigar, in the south of Afghanistan, as she tries to keep her family together after the invasion.
“I was just living on my own, my family were on the other side of the country and I was fighting for my country,” Ellroy says in the film, which premiered in London last month.
The film opens with the story that Ellroy, a filmmaker who has never been to Afghanistan, heard on the radio about the Taliban.
It was a story about the return of a Taliban leader who had been in hiding for years.
Ellroy was determined to find him and tell his story.
This was the first time in my life that I saw a Taliban in person, he says.
He went to the local district council, which is the local Taliban leader’s office.
He said, ‘Listen, this is where the leader of the Taliban is.
I’m going to give you this message, this message to the world, so you know where the Taliban are and you can go to their meeting.’
He gave me this phone number, which was my number, and said, “Call me if you have any questions.'”
I thought he was going to kill me.
And then he gave me some money and he said, you know, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming.’
“Ellroy says that the meeting went on for two hours.
They were having this huge meeting, the elders, the tribal elders.
He says they were trying to figure out who was going in, what they were going to do.
I was really shocked by what I was seeing and hearing.
He tells the film about the excitement and the chaos and then he says, ‘We’re going to see what happens, you’re going there.’
And then I got the phone call that he called and said: “You’re going.”
“And I knew that I could trust him.” “
I felt really betrayed,” he says in The Taliban.
“And I knew that I could trust him.”
In his first interviews, Ellroy recounts how he felt after he left the Taliban and began seeing more of his family.
A few weeks after the meeting, he went back to the village, and he says he went and saw his wife.
She had been shot in the head and he had a heart attack.
She was dead, but he told her he loved her, that he’d see her again.
And she said: ‘I love you, man.’
And he said: ”We’re never going to be apart again.’
And she died in the car.
His mother was so sad, he told the film.
He was crying because he was so happy and then I was crying, because I wanted to tell her how I felt.
And he was crying.
He wanted to leave.
And his mother said, ”Don’t leave me, man.
Don’t leave this woman, you don’t know what you’re doing.”
Ellroy then returned to the Taliban meeting, and this time, they welcomed him back.
He told the elders what he had seen, and they said, OK, that’s enough, and we are not going anywhere.
He is now a Taliban fighter, and his story is told in the documentary.
Ellry says that he has been working on the film for a number of years.
He has filmed more than 50 interviews in the United States and Britain, and in the past few years he has also worked with several foreign governments, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
When he came to London, he saw a film on the BBC about his film and he was intrigued by the Taliban as an enemy.
“The Taliban were one of the few people that I knew in the world who were actually doing what they said they were doing and I think that was a very big inspiration to me,” he said.
And he also saw that there was a lot of injustice going on in Afghanistan and that the world was not doing enough to make the Taliban feel like they had something to offer the people of Afghanistan.
But he says that as a filmmaker, the Taliban have been very generous to him.
“I think they’ve been really great,” he told The Huffington Post.
“The people that they’ve seen on their TV shows, and the movies, they have actually come and taken some of the most difficult decisions for me, and that was very, very hard.
But I think they have a very positive view of me, because they know that I have their
