The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan is a 2010 documentary film produced by Clover Films and directed by Afghan journalist Najibullah Quraishi about the practice of bacha bazi in Afghanistan. The 52-minute documentary premiered in the UK at the Royal Society of Arts on March 29, 2010[1] and aired on PBS Frontline in the United States on April 20.

Bacha bazi, also known as bacchá (from the Persian bacheh بچه‌), literally "playing with boys" in Persian, Pashto and Hindi-Urdu), is a form of sexual slavery and child prostitution[2] in which prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy or powerful men for entertainment and sexual activities. This business thrives in Afghanistan, where many men keep dancing boys as status symbols. The practice is illegal under Afghan law.
