Directed by Oscar nominee Ashvin Kumar, Inshallah Football is a film set in the invisible war of Kashmir Valley. It follows the journey of a young star footballer Basharat, caught between his dreams of becoming the first Kashmiri to play professional football in Brazil, and the extraordinary challenges of being born the son of an ex-militant.
A spontaneous hand-drawn logotype brings a sense of self-expression, a cry for a way out from one of the most militarized zones in the world. A gnarled wire in the foreground – goal post net or barbed wire – both restrains as well as promises release.
