Abstract

Zanzibar Soccer Dreams, a feature documentary film directed by Catalin Brylla (UWL Senior Lecturer in Film) and Florence Ayisi (University of South Wales, Professor in Documentary), premiers at the Canadian Sport Film Festival on 22 May 2016. The film continues the story of Ayisi's 2007 documentary, 'Zanzibar Soccer Queens,' on which Brylla also collaborated. 'Zanzibar Soccer Dreams' looks at how women's football has grown as an official sport for girls in schools across Zanzibar, and the impact it has had on women's empowerment and equality.
