The interpreters who worked for American and NATO forces during the recent Afghanistan war are among our bravest and most loyal allies. They played an essential role educating foreign troops about the local culture they so badly needed to understand, and sourcing intelligence.

As the US withdraws from Afghanistan, the tens of thousands of Afghans who put their own and their families’ lives at risk, because they believed US promises would be fulfilled, should now be offered safe haven. Instead, a majority of the interpreters are being denied transit to the US, or left in limbo for years on end.

VICE News spoke with several interpreters now living across the world about their experiences since ending their work with the US and NATO, and those broken promises. Check out the trailer for the forthcoming documentary here.
