Afghan Market Anchors a Community

Afghan Market Anchors a Community from Kalpana Biswas on Vimeo.

I made this documentary short about how the Afghan Market has successfully become the anchor for a multi-faceted immigrant community in Alexandria, Virginia by bringing them a taste of home.The making of kalapacha, a traditional lamb’s head soup from Afghanistan and border regions, becomes a way to win hearts on a cold December afternoon.

Grateful thanks to Bill Gentile, Bruce Jones and the Backpack Video Journalism Team.
