Sean Langan will be talking about his Taliban kidnap experiences with award-winning foreign correspondent Sam Kiley at the Frontline Club tonight.

If you can’t make it to the club in person, you can catch the discussion live on the Frontline Club live channel.

Sean Langan is a British journalist and documentary film-maker and has made a name for himself by making video-diary style films in dangerous and volatile situations, from Latin America to Zimbabwe. Most recently, he’s made a name for himself with his films Fighting the Taliban and Meeting the Taliban in Afghanistan. In 2008 he was kidnapped while filming in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and freed three months later after his family had negotiated his release. link
