Buzkashi Boys (Pesaran-e-Buzkashi)

 

Year: 2011
Country: AFGHANISTAN, USA
Run Time: 28 minutes

Set against the dramatic landscape of contemporary Afghanistan and the National sport of Buzkashi - a brutal game of horse polo played with a dead goat - Buzkashi Boys tells the compelling coming of age story of two best friends, a charismatic street urchin and a defiant blacksmith's son, who struggle to realize their dreams as they make their way to manhood in one of the most war-torn countries on Earth. Shot on location in Kabul city by an alliance of Afghan and international film makers, Buzkashi Boys is a heart-rending look at the life that continues beyond the headlines of war in Afghanistan.
