A look at what happened behind the scenes on the film 'Ni Kombela Golo' directed by Sofia Moleiro e Luís Leite.

We follow a young football player and watch his desire to build a better future throw sport. Children in Mozambique have poor access to education. Being often in the midst of unstructured families, these children urge some support to establish a balance in their life. In the middle of one of the suburbs of Maputo a foundation Favela United comes to support these children, providing them with psycho-social tools for their lives.

This doc-drama, shot in the Polana Caniço B Neighborhood in Maputo, Mozambique, is about the transformational power of football to empower youth from mozambican marginalised community.

We recorded the film with a Panasonic GH4 and decided to focus a lot on the sounds because it is a fantastic feature of Africa and of course, you can hear the joy of football. For this purpose we used an NTG3 and also the Filmmaker Kit to capture real sounds of the character's breathing while playing ball. The neighborhood was full of noises so we had to resort to foley to recreate some sounds later.
