Heroic Narratives

Football is Mdudu Boy’s world. But he isn’t allowed to play with the big boys as he might get “stepped on.” The story follows our hero as he grows in confidence and realises his potential.

The short screened as part of the Family Friendly screenings at ASFF 2016. Shot on location in Kenya. Written and directed by Ella Smith. Produced by Dominic Tighe for Giant Productions.
