Brent Huffman

Medill - Northwestern University

Saving Mes Aynak is a documentary chronicling the fight to save a 2,000-year-old archaeology site in Afghanistan threatened by a Chinese copper mine. Mes Aynak, located in volatile Logar province, is comprised of an ancient 500,000 square meter Buddhist city on top of an even older Bronze age site. Discoveries at the site have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and the history of Buddhism itself.
