NEFTA FOOTBALL CLUB :: An Yves Piat short film

Nefta Football Club short film


In the south of Tunisia, two football fan brothers bump into a donkey lost in the middle of the desert on the border of Algeria. Strangely, the animal wears headphones over its ears.

French director Yves Plat helmed Nefta Football Club, which Short of the Week calls, "A crowd-pleasing farce. A potentially dangerous situation is suffused with gentle humor, turning a cliché premise into a surprising and amusing comedy - one that benefits from its fully realized and charming locale."
