His areas of expertise are computer science and developing countries. Nazir Peroz heads the Center for International and Intercultural Communication, or ZiiK, at Berlin’s Technical University. Born in Kabul, he has been living in Germany since the late 1970s. His current mission is to revolutionize Afghanistan with German help.
Peroz has been working to establish an IT system in his former homeland since 2002. The scientist travels to Afghanistan four times a year to visit the universities with which he is cooperating on the project. Decades of war have left the nation demoralized; acts of terrorism and violent clashes are the order of the day. But Peroz is undeterred. He works as unobtrusively as possible, and remains focused on his goal. A DW camera team accompanied him on one of his trips back home - to Kabul, Mazar-i-Sharif and Herat. The documentary offers a rare insight into the lives of people on the Hindu Kush.
