Women Sports Film Festival presents The Best of the Fest 2018
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Mark your calendars for October 18th! Join Women Sports Film Festival and Oakland Athletic League for a night of our favorite sporty short films. 100% of ticket proceeds will benefit girls sports teams in Oakland Unified School District. One of the short films we'll be highlighting is Mama Agatha. Mama Agatha is a 59-year-old Ghanaian woman who runs a bicycle training program for migrant and refugee women in the south of Amsterdam. A ‘community mother' with a larger-than-life personality, she teaches a group of women from Pakistan, Morocco, Somalia, China and elsewhere the most basic Dutch skill: cycling. Mama Agatha's summer course ends in a colorful graduation ceremony where the migrant ladies receive their diplomas and take to the streets of Amsterdam on their brand new bicycles.
