Married To The Game

HER Films follows Wolverhampton Wanderers Captain Danny Batth out to India as he returns to his heritage to meet with a school using football to keep girls out of child marriage and in education. The documentary looks at the gender equality gap in both India and the Sports industry - and how one school is using the 'male' game to change girls futures.

Director Statement

Jharkhand India is statistically one of the most dangerous places in the world to be born a girl. Married to the Game dives right into the middle of a village rife with Child Marriage and focusses on one school- YUWA, that has been developed to give these girls the voices and education they have the right to.
I like to use the entertainment industry and art to educate. My hope is that when people watch this film, they come away with a broader perspective of what else is out there in the world and that it ignites a passion within themselves to do more towards making society a more equal playing field.
