The Kite Runner

Digital Storytelling

I choose to represent this text with the artist role because I believe that sucess and failure can be expressed easliy throughout visuals. In the novel "The Kite Runner", the characters are successful and do fail.

The novel "The Kite Runner" is based on Amir and his life. He is forced to move from his wealthy atmosphere in Afghanistan to America due to military invasions. The novel begins with his childhood in Afghanistan with his is known as a coward and has situations he regrets. Throughout the novel Amir is forced to deal with his past in order to complete his family friend Rahim Khan' task.
