Fawad Mohammadi is just like any other afghan boy. However, there is one detail that sets him apart from the rest. He will have the privilege to take a stroll on the Oscars ceremony’s symbolical red-carpet thanks to his lead role in Sam French’s Buzkashi Boys.

This little anecdote begs the question: “How did this little afghan boy get to star in movie nominated for the Oscars”? As it turns out, Fawad Mohammadi met Sam French on Chicken Street in Kabul. One second, the 14 year old was selling maps of Afghanistan and the next he was chosen by the director to star in Buzkashi Boys, a movie which has been nominated for the Oscars.

When asked about Fawad Mohammadi, French said, “We knew him from Chicken Street as the kindest and most warm-hearted street-kid, who would provide 'body guarding' services and sell maps -- he always had a smile and witty remark”. Mohammadi was therefore the perfect candidate for the lead role in Buzkashi Boys.


Buzkashi Boys is the new hope of Afghan cinema

The plot of Buzkashi Boys revolves around two young boys in Kabul who adulate and wish to become Buzkashi riders. This sport is one very similar to polo except that a headless goat is used to replace the ball. The very sincere nature of the film and the importance it seeks to give to Afghan cinema is probably why it was nominated for the Oscars.

The once lively cinema industry of Afghanistan is being brought back to life, slowly but surely. The past three decades of wars and crisis had nearly killed any hopes of there being any form of art there, especially during the Taliban regime of 1996 to 2001, during which music and films were banned. However Buzkashi Boys being nominated for the Oscars gives hopes as to an emerging scene for the seventh art.
