Press

  • Variety
    Orner artfully and engagingly fashions a portrait of television as a form of entertainment and an agent of change
  • The Guardian
    This could be the pick of SBS’s typically impressive collection of summer documentaries
  • Monsters and Critics
    Non-reality TV finds a place in war-torn Afghanistan in this insightful slice of life of the fledgling broadcast industry.
    Ron Wilkinson
  • The Atlantic
    The Network, though, makes a powerful case that, whatever its limitations, a free media, in the form of Sesame Street, cop dramas, travel shows, or women dancing without headscarves, is vital if Afghanistan is ever to know peace.
