Details

Barney Douglas directs this documentary about the Maasai warriors cricket team.

The film follows the Kenyan team as they travel to the home of cricket to participate in the Last Man Stands cricket finals in London and tells the story of their formation. The documentary chronicles the team's struggles to play and practice together which include convincing their elders to give them a patch of land and highlights the young men's efforts to confront some of their society's patriarchal prejudices and practices, icluding attitudes to HIV / AIDS and FGM.

But can cricket really bring lasting social change to the remote region of the Maasai?
