Kick off! was at a football film festival organised by Eze Alloysius in Lagos, Nigeria. We accompanied Eze in the run-up to and during the festival. The festival isn’t about showing the best films or the most beautiful pictures, but instead providing a platform to tell true stories of passion, talent, failure and corruption in football. After the screenings, the crowd have the opportunity to discuss what they have just watched. The most prominent question at the festival: What role does African football play?
