Tine Vanhee is a Belgian freelance journalist. She made her first reports for ‘TV Brussel’, and was one of the driving forces behind ‘Bel’Afrika’, a program made for and by the African community in Brussels. She was also very engaged in alternative media platforms like Indymedia and Get Basic.
During the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, Tine worked and lived in Rocinha, Brazil’s biggest favela. She wrote blog items and pieces for newspaper De Morgen, for online investigative platform Apache, and she contributed to several news items for national television.
But two years before the Worldcup, Tine had already fallen in love with Afghanistan. In 2012 and 2013 she worked for the Belgian NGO Mothers for Peace in Kabul. And that’s where she developed the idea for a documentary about the ‘real Afghanistan’. #Wearekabul tells the story of five extraordinary women: a rapper, an artist, a bike racer, a journalist and a photographer. This documentary challenges the biased coverage of the country and its inhabitants by traditional media. It’s a scream for solidarity with the victims of terrorism worldwide.
