From acclaimed Black British filmmaker Horace Ové (Pressure, 1975) comes this comedy of manners in which a West Indian cricket team from Brixton travel to a Suffolk village to play against the local team as the culmination of the village’s ‘Third World Week’. Ové subtly explores and undermines stereotypes and succeeds in linking two familiar but strange cultures through the simple device of a sports game.
