Khartoum Offside (2019)

Sobre o filme

A group of young ladies in Khartoum are determined to play soccer professionally. They are prepared to defy the ban imposed by Sudan’s Islamic Military government. Their battle to get officially recognized as Sudan’s National Women’s team is fearless, courageous and often laughable. Through the intimate portrait of these women over a number of years we follow their moments of hope and deception. There is a new spark of hope when the elections within the federation could mean real change of the entire system.

Presented at Berlin International Film Festival and at some of the most important documentary festivals like Visions du Réel, CPH: DOX, Sheffield, Hot Docs and IDFA.
