Soccer Doc selected for Buster, Copenhagen
The short Dutch documentary SAYED, SOCCER TALENT by Hans Groenendijk, produced by Groener Gras TV, is selected for the Buster Copenhagen International Film Festival for Children and Youth. Previously, SAYED, SOCCER TALENT received an honourable mention at the Gulf Film Festival in Dubai.
SAYED, SOCCER TALENT portrays 11-year-old Sayed Abdullah Sulaiman, a soccer talent from Kuwait. After Sayed’s parents placed a video of their son on internet, Sayed was invited to play for several European clubs, including Barcelona and Feyenoord.
After the release of the documentary Sayed played a while for Excelsior in the Netherlands. In Kuwait the media were paying attention to his talent as well, by producing a real life soap about his life.
Every year the Buster Film Festival attracts tens of thousands of children and adolescents from Copenhagen. The festival selects films of high artistic quality and offers a diverse program. The festival takes place from September 9 – 19, 2010.
