Out of the Ashes

Dir: Lucy; Leslie Martens; Knott

United Kingdom (UK)


90 mins

Out of the Ashes traces the extraordinary journey of a team of young Afghan cricketers in their against-the-odds quest to qualify for the World Cup.

Executive-produced by Oscar-winning director and cricket enthusiast Sam Mendes, Out of the Ashes joins the squad as they go from playing on rubble pitches to batting their way around the globe and up the international league tables. With unrestricted behind-the-scenes access and footage of international matches, the film follows the ups-and-downs of their epic journey.

Witty, touching and nail-biting to the end, Out of the Ashes is a compelling story of triumph over adversity.
