About ‘Escape From Kabul’

On Aug. 13, 2021, a group of U.S. Marines was tasked with evacuating U.S. citizens and “at risk” Afghans in Kabul. Just two days after the Marines arrived in Afghanistan, the Taliban seized the city. This led to the U.S. withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan and many citizens who were trying to flee through the Kabul International Airport were left to get out on their own.

The Taliban fighters guarded the airport, leaving citizens with no way to escape. Ultimately, 13 U.S. troops and over 170 Afghan citizens were killed.

“Escape From Kabul” is an immersive and emotional documentary that offers an up-close look at the events that transpired over 18 days. It features archival footage and exclusive interviews from those directly involved and impacted. Afghan citizens, U.S. Marines, and members of the Taliban add their experiences to the intriguing documentary.
