Annals Of Human Culture: Buzkashi Boys

January 8, 2013

Buzkashi is the Afghan national sport. It’s like polo, except the riders play with a headless, disemboweled goat. Buzkashi Boys is a short film about the ambitions of young Afghan boys that is getting Oscar buzz. It looks like a fascinating journey into the desperation and savagery that poverty and illiteracy can breed.

To fix the world, first you have to fix people.
