DCCC: An evening with Philip Khokhar
In May 2018, Danish correspondent and author, Philip Khokhar, published his first book "Tilbage til Kabul - Reportager fra en krig uden ende" ("Back to Kabul - Reports from a war without an end"), which tells the story of people's daily lives in the chaotic capital of Afghanistan, Kabul. The war and chaos in Afghanistan has been a main focus of various Western media, but in his book, Philip Khokhar takes you beyond the rolling cameras and portrays the personal stories of people's lives in Kabul and how they try to maintain a sufferable life in the chaos.
The DCCC invites you to hear a personal presentation of "Back to Kabul" by the author himself. For more than 10 years, Philip Khokar has covered the war in Afghanistan as he worked as correspondent for the central Danish TV-station, DR, and since 2014, he has lived in Beijing, while working as the Asia correspondent for DR. For our Q&A session we invite everyone to ask questions, not only relating to Philip Khokhar's new book, but also on how it is to live as an Asia correspondent in China.
