Sam French on his film "Buzkashi Boys"

June 23, 2013

“Buzkashi Boys” was one of the film shorts nominated for an Oscar this year. This is a coming of age story set in Afghanistan’s national sport, Buzkashi. It's a game of horse polo played with a dead goat instead of a ball.



Thank you for this story & all the other pieces about Afghanistan in the show today!

War is NOT the answer!
Your film helps us move beyond the sad USA war
to see life, not more destruction.
