Meet the Journalist: Alexandria Bombach

Documentary filmmaker Alexandria Bombach talks about the making of her film "Afghanistan by Choice." Filmed in January 2016, "Afghanistan by Choice" serves as a portrait of how it feels to live day to day in Kabul right now—interweaving the lives of five Afghans who are making the choice to stay, leave on a special visa, or leave illegally. This choice is not a simple one. Filled with regret, promise, disappointment, pride, frustration, and hope—every individual stands to lose so much no matter what they decide.
