“Angels Are Made of Light,” directed by Oscar-nominated director James Longley, traces the lives of young students and their teachers over a three-year period at the Daqiqi Balkhi school in the old city district of Kabul.

Interweaving the modern history of Afghanistan with present-day portraits, the Kabul on display in the documentary is a place fraught with poverty and instability, but by placing his focus on the next generation and the men and women who educate them, Longley has seized upon Afghanistan’s single most important resource: relentless, radiant hope.

“Angels Are Made Of Light” opens in New York City on July 24.
