Following the international hit The Boy who Plays on the Buddhas of Bamiyan, The Boy Mir will cover not one year but ten. It will track the cheeky, enthusiastic Mir from a childish eight to a fully grown eighteen-year-old. Over those ten years, it will be a journey into early adulthood in one of the toughest places on earth; a journey that mirrors the current and vitally important story of Afghanistan. -- (C) Seventh Art Productions

Critic Reviews for The Boy Mir: Ten Years in Afghanistan
An intimate portrait of a poor boy's progress towards manhood in a troubled country.
The stark mountainous beauty that framed the Buddhas remains a terrific backdrop for Grabsky's doc.
It's overlong and not incredibly enlightening, but it's compassionate enough to hold the attention.
Mir gets under your skin in ways that are memorable and poignantly real.
Conveys an understanding of Afghan culture better than anything we've seen yet. Well worth its ninety minute screen time, and a lot more.
If you've seen the first film, you'll want to come back to see Mir's progress through life. And no matter what happens, it seems, the smile remains.
