Event Description:

The Kite Runner is a 2007 film based on the book by Khaled Hosseini. Alternating between modern San Franscisco and 1970's Afghanistan, it tells the story of two young boys, the well-to-do Amir and Hassan, his loyal friend and son of Amir's father's servant. An act of betrayal in the past leads to a search for redemption, when Amir returns to Afghanistan to help Hassan's troubled son. The film was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Original Score, and a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film.
