In July 2006 Frida was 11 years old. She was in Ghana in West Africa for four weeks working with me. In this film Frida is playing a soccergame in the village of Akobima at a Cultural Day. The game was 40 minutes long and it was 42 Celsius degrees. So this is only some small glimpses from the game. This was the end and grand final of a long cultural event for the whole village. And all the villagers where watching the game. Two teams met, the Akobima Stars and Frida Stars. Frida was the only girl in the two teams. In Akombima no girls had played soccer. After the game noone believed Frida was a girl. The boys and the girls thought she was a boy with long hair. So they even came to feel her body to find out if she really was a girl. After we came home we received emails from Akobima where they told that now all the girls wants to play soccer. Therefore they had started a girls team and named it Frida Stars.
