We Could be Heroes

Hind Bensari, Morocco, 2018

In the deprived neighborhoods of Safi, Morocco’s most important industrial port, Azzedine, a Seated Shots World Record holder and his trainee Youssef, a mentally disabled want-to-be athlete, dedicate themselves to sport with the goal to make it to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. They hope that their participation will change the way they are perceived at home.
