British documentary film-maker Asad Qureshi works in the world's most dangerous places.
When he sets off to film secret interviews with Taliban commanders, this award-winning film-maker finds himself on the wrong end of the camera lens, with a gun at his temple and a price of ten million US dollars on his head.
165 Days is Asad Qureshi's compelling first-hand account of kidnap and captivity at the hands of single-minded warriors, and of the emotional turmoil endured by those on the outside: ageing parents in failing health, a stoical brother who faces down the terrorists and a loving American wife pushed to the limit by her husband’s ordeal.
A moving personal story of fear, loss, hope and the strength of the human spirit, 165 Days offers unique behind-the-scenes insights into the workings of a notorious paramilitary network operating in the world’s foremost trouble spot and contains shattering revelations that impact hugely on Western diplomatic and military efforts in this complex region.
