Director: Florence Ayisi, Catalin Brylla. Tanzania/UK 2016. 70 mins. English/Swahili with English subtitles. A sequel to the successful documentary Zanzibar Soccer Queens (2007), this film fast forwards to the lives of some of the women who embraced football both as an expression of self, but equally as a vision for society. We see likeable, funny and intelligent women describe how they were once labelled "hooligans" but are now ambassadors representing their country on state and international visits. In this energetic film, we see how sport is helping to challenge the taboos of gender, religion and culture. Preceded by Zura Taekwondo Fighter CFF U
