KANDAGAR

Some behind the scenes images from the 2010 Russian 'blockbuster' film Kandagar (Kandahar) that I was physical Special Effects Supervisor on. We shot it on location in Morocco - in and around Marrakech in the Atlas Mountains, and at an air base in Errachidia in eastern Morocco.

The film is based on actual events that occurred in Afghanistan in 1995 when an Ilyushin Il-76 and the crew were captured and held for over a year in Kandahar by the Taliban. Led by Captain Vladimir Sharpatov they eventually escaped with the plane and flew back to freedom.

Here is the trailer of the film followed by image galleries:
