“Buzkashi Boys” nominated for an Academy Award

I wish the best of luck to Martin Desmond Roe who co-produced “Buzkashi Boys”, a film nominated in the Best Short Film category at the 85th Academy Awards.

I had the pleasure of working with Martin on “The City of Lost Souls” trailer.

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 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 look at the life that continues beyond the headlines of war in Afghanistan.

Good luck, Martin!
