It's enough to make a grown movie fan weep

I was going through a huge list of links to film archive websites last night for La-La Land and I came across one to the "Afghan Film Archive". It's currently a solitary page with this picture and description:

Remains of Afghan Film archive in Kabul. The Taliban burned the archive before fleeing the city. Almost the entire archive is gone, except for a few originals saved by Afghan Film employees who stashed them behind a false wall.

Bloody hell.
