Short of the Week: Nefta Football Club, dir. Yves Piat

Saturday 1 February 2020, by Abla Kandalaft

In a Tunisian village, children are playing football on a wasteland. Meanwhile, Abdallah and Mohammed come across a donkey with headphones on his ears and bags full of a white powder on his back. The two young brothers decide to bring those bags back to their village.

This amusing, sweet short film by Yves Piat received the audience prize at Clermont-Ferrand 2019 and has recently enjoyed both Cesar and Oscar nominations. Thanks to the Univers Cine team, you can now catch it online with English subtitles.

Here’s our interview with director Yves Piat from last year’s Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.
