Undestroyed: one man’s journey to Afghanistan
with Ian Pounds
In the tradition of Spalding Gray’s “Swimming to Cambodia”, Ian Pounds recounts the, at times humorous and inspiring, story of his solo journey to Afghanistan as a response to a splintered life, landing him as the only westerner in an orphanage in Kabul. After four years teaching over 300 boys and girls representative of all regions and races, Pounds gives unique insight to the people and the country of America’s longest conflict. Ultimately this is the tale of how, in living among children of war a man discovers how truly a land, its people and a broken heart can become Undestroyed.
This will be held at the Uri-Eichen art gallery in the Pilsen area of Chicago.
