Posted April 6, 2021
Date: Thursday, April 8, 2021
Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m. (EST)
Directed by Marwa Zein, Khartoum Offside depicts a group of young women in Khartoum defying a ban by the Sundanese Islamic Military government to play organized soccer. Determined to play soccer professionally, they fearlessly fight to get officially recognized as Sudan's National Women's team. The team continues to be marginalized despite FIFA's support--but a new spark of hope could mean real change of the entire system.
