Stranger

2017, documentary, Belgium, 54 min, dir: Kenneth Michiels North American premiere

An immigrant from Senegal, Moussa volunteers to coach BX Brussels’ 12- and 13-year-old team. The players are themselves immigrants, dealing with the challenges of a new country, pressures at home, and life in the Belgian capital’s more troubling neighbourhoods, where one child in three lives at the poverty line. Through all this, and lopsided losses, Moussa tries to forge a community based on sportsmanship on the field and respect for cultural differences off of it.
