"Between the Cup and the Election" + Q&A w/ dir. Monique Phoba [Congo in Harlem 2]
Between the Cup and the Election
Dir. Monique Mbeka Phoba and Guy Kabeya Muya, 2008, 56 min.
Inspired by the 2006 elections in Congo, a group of film students sets out to make a film. They track down members of the 1974 Leopards, Zaire's national soccer squad, the first team from sub-Saharan Africa to qualify for the World Cup. After a dismal first round performance -- the Leopards were outscored 14-0 in three games -- the players returned home in disgrace and drifted into obscurity. The team's captain, however, has fared better and is running for political office in Kinshasa. Deftly weaving past and present, Between the Cup and the Election offers a personal and endearing study of the intersection between sport and politics.
After the movie:
Discussion with director Monique Phoba + reception

Part of Congo in Harlem 2 series (October 8th - 23rd, 2010):
Congo in Harlem 2 is the second annual series of Congo-related films and events at the Maysles Cinema in Harlem. This year's program showcases a wide range of films by Congolese and international directors, representing the most important issues facing the Democratic Republic of Congo today. Most screenings will be followed by panel discussions, special events, musical performances, and receptions. Congo in Harlem 2 will provide audiences with more than the traditional movie-going experience -- it will offer opportunities to celebrate Congolese culture, learn about the ongoing humanitarian crisis, engage in dialog, and get involved.
