We Came Home
We Came Home tells the story of Afghanistan through Afghan American artist, Ariana Delawari. Born into a suburban Los Angeles home, the same year the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, Ariana's life unfolds parallel to the ever-changing events of her father's homeland. Her parents name her after the ancient name of Afghanistan. Her home is filled with refugee relatives, parties with live Afghan music, and her father's fierce dedication to his homeland.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"We Came Home is ultimately more interesting to talk about than to watch."
‑ Violet Lucca, Village Voice
"Tis intimate film, Ms. Delawari's first, is about ... her family's history (seen in home movies and photographs), the resilience of the Afghan people, and her own story of self-discovery as a musician."
‑ Nicole Herrington, New York Times
""We Came Home" has its amateurish side, but it's effortlessly affecting when showing how music acts as an extended hand across generations and cultures."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
