African Visions:
The Golden Ball (PG)
Dir: Chiek Doukoure Guinea/France 1993 1hr 40mins subtitled

This comedy-drama follows the early life of diminutive football mad teenager Bandian (Sidiki Sumah). His lifetime ambition to become one of Africa's greatest soccer players, seems an unrealistic objective as his life ebbs away in an isolated village, until the arrival of the 1990 World Cup and the unprecedented euphoria surrounding the success of the Cameroon team. Bandian leaves for the bright lights of the big city, where he is adopted by a football manager and a local businessman. One wants to send him to Europe to play in the big league, the other tries to keep him at home for the good of African football.

"An evocative commentary on late twentieth-century African society, as well as a reflection of its obsession with football, The Golden Ball is a warm and moving film, a fine example of modern-day African film making" Nigel Robinson.

(Programmed for the Humber Mouth 'African Visions' by: Mark Ogden, Hull Screen)

There is another opportunity to see 'The Golden Ball' at Hull Screen on Wednesday 14th November at 7.30pm
