- Brent E. Huffman is a documentary filmmaker and assistant professor at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern Univ. He started making a film about the Mes Aynak site in the summer of 2011 thinking he would be documenting the site before it was demolished and recording the process of rescue archeology. Now he hopes he can use his film to raise awareness to actually save Mes Aynak.
