During the week of November 30–December 3, BYU's International Cinema program will be presenting the film Khartoum Offside (dir. Marwa Zein, Arabic, 2019, 75 minutes). In this Sudanese sports documentary four years in the making, a group of women in Khartoum are determined to play soccer professionally despite the ban imposed by Sudan’s Islamic Military government.
On the evening of 1 December, join us for a discussion of the film with BYU alum Scott Catt, an educator and professional basketball coach who worked with the South Sudanese national teams.
Discussion co-sponsored by the Kennedy Center's Africana Studies program.
