Storyboard Text

  • POWERFUL
  • DISAPPOINTED
  • SELF-RELIANT
  • “And in those dreams, I can never tell Baba from the bear.”- Baba pg.13 “My father was a force of nature, a towering Pashtun specimen with a thick beard, a wayward crop of curly brown hair as unruly as the man himself, hands that looked capable of uprooting a willow tree, and a black glare that would ‘drop the devil to his knees begging for mercy’...”- Amir pg.13
  • VULNERABLE
  • "I'm telling you, Rahim, there is something missing in that boy."-Baba pg.24 "If I hadn't seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I'd never believe he's my son."- Baba pg. 25
  • ACCEPTING 
  • "As words from the Koran reverberated through the room, I thought of the old story of Baba wrestling a black bear in Baluchistan. Baba had wrestled bears his whole life. Losing his young wife. Raising a son by himself. Leaving his beloved homeland, his watan. Poverty. Indignity." (13.51)
  • SUBORDINATE
  • “...Baba’s face drawn and pale under the bright fluorescent lights...Baba would look over his shoulder, wave, and smile, his eyes watering from fatigue.”pg. 137
  • "Amir is going to be a great writer...He had finished his first year of college and earned A's in all of his courses"- Baba pg.139 "'I am motfakhir, Amir,' he said. Proud."- Baba pg.139
  • "In the end, a bear had come that he couldn't best. But even then, he had lost on his own terms." (13.51)
