JOHN MOFFAT

BAFTA NOMINATED FILM EDITOR & PRODUCER

 

As the West pours billions of dollars into the fight against the Taliban in southern Afghanistan, an ancient tradition (banned when the Taliban were in power) has re-emerged across the rest of the country. Many hundreds of young boys living in extreme poverty are lured off the streets on the promise of a new life away from destitution, unaware their real fate is to be used for entertainment by the warlords and other powerful men of Afghanistan.

This film was constructed to gently draw the viewer into the horrific world of Bach Bazzi.  Only as we peel back the layers of this insidious world do get to see the true brutal reality: slavery, rape and murder.
