a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

I know it’s an Oscar category that nobody ever pays attention to ~ until now ~when I give the full-on “Stephen Holt Show” interview experience to the dynamic Sam French, a filmmaker who lives and works in Kabul, Afghanistan! “Buzkashi Boys” is about two street kids who dream of growing up to be Buzkhashi horsemen, which is the national sport of Afghanistan. I’ll let Sam descrbie exactly what it is. Even though a short, this film was really powerful, shot completely on the streets and locations in Kabul, capturing sights never seen before on film.

I interviewed Sam this summer at the Montreal Film Festival. We went to see the final screening of his film in the Cinema ONF of the National Film Board of Canada on one of the days before it was about to be torn down! An historic moment!
