Buz and Chini - Afghanistan's first 3D animation

Sunday, May 27, 2012
Kabul: Afghanistan has produced its first self-funded 3D animation cartoon. The protagonists are the goat Buz and Chini as well as bad wolf that would love to eat her little goat kids.

Set against the picturesque backdrop of the Buddha statues in Bamyan, Afganistan Province, this short animation is based on an ancient Hazara folk tale, encouraging peace and brotherhood.

Abbas Ali, Director of the cartoon, was born in Afghanistan and had to flee from the country when the Taliban took control in the 1990s. After getting a degree in graphic animation in Pakistan, he decided to base his first animation project on a story very close to his Hazara roots.

Abbas started the production of "Buz e Chini" in 2005. The project was self-funded and the team had to struggle hard for a couple of years to raise money for the postproduction.
