FSK-rated 18 years and older
This documentary portrays a group of young activists during football training on the outskirts of Khartoum. In their tireless pursuit of their dream – to build a Sudanese Women’s World Cup team – the women are hampered by the traditional gender roles and encounter enormous resistance at the cultural, political and social levels. Closely following the self-confident, determined athletes, the camera captures their remarkable sense of humour and amicable solidarity. The film showcases these courageous feminists who transcend stereotypes by actively campaigning for women’s rights in Sudan.
The film screening will be followed by a talk with director Marwa Zein.
