Warriors film poster
Runtime: 86′

For the Maasai, a change is coming. The young want equal rights for all, an end to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), and a change of attitude to HIV/Aids. To achieve all this – they are forming a cricket team. Can the Warriors use their new-found unity on the field as an inspiration to those off it and will cricket really bring change to the region?


The film was introduced by:

  • Mr Barney Douglas, Director of the film
  • Mrs Dagmar Schumacher, Director of UN Women Brussels Liaison Office
  • Imali Ngusale, Advocay Officer for DSW Kenya
  • Ms Sietske Steneker, Director of UNFPA Brussels Office
