Afghan crick­eters drive for the top

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - FILM -

A new doc­u­men­tary comes to the Hyde Park Pic­ture House in Jan­uary, shed­ding light on a nation be­yond burqas, bombs, drugs and dev­as­ta­tion.

Against a back­drop of war and poverty, Out of the Ashes traces the ex­tra­or­di­nary jour­ney of the Afghan cricket team as they chase a seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble dream – their quest to qual­ify for the World Cup.

The doc­u­men­tary is on Tues­day, Jan­uary 11, 8.20pm, Hyde Park Pic­ture House, Bru­denell Road, Leeds. Tick­ets are avail­able on 0113 275 2045, www.hy­de­parkpic­ture­house. co.uk
