The Mosaic Rooms are delighted to present a screening of Over the Wall – Football Beyond Borders on:
Tuesday 9th October, 7pm
Over the Wall is a film about the journey of a British University team who are transformed by the events they bear witness to in the Middle East which force them to change their outlook on life.
In the year of the Arab Spring, a diverse London based team, head to Egypt armed with a football and a desire to engage with local communities. International news unfolds around them. With events ranging from the siege of the Israeli embassy in Cairo to bombings in Gaza the boys quickly see that this tour is about more than just football.
The worsening situation forces the team to rethink their agenda. Do they carry on with their journey into Palestine? The outcome of their decision and the subsequent events that follow make them realise that there is a greater goal in life.
Over The Wall provides a refreshing insight into this unique group of young men who, through their journey, challenge common perceptions of 21st Century London, the Middle East, football and activism. By documenting the team’s personal experience, the film provides a humane insight into these events which are rarely found in the media. These young people express their opinions on the changing world around them and display increased awareness as a group eventually coming to find a political voice.
Delicious Middle Eastern food and refreshments will be available and the screening will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew members.
Tickets £5.00, no concessions. http://www.wegottickets.com/event/187562
