PLUG: Wallbangers

Some of you may have wondered where my blogging name (Squasher88) comes from. Well, it relates to a sport that I'm very passionate about called squash. I've been playing competitively since the age of 11 and it has been a major part of my life. It's a sport that not too many people know about and that's partly because we haven't been accepted into the Summer Olympics yet. Over the past 10 years or so, the squash fraternity has really stepped up its campaign to finally win the bid for inclusion. As an indirect part of this campaign, an Egyptian filmmaker has embarked on an documentary feature film project called "Wallbangers". The film will follow the lives of some of the top Egyptian players (that country currently dominates the sport) as they tour the world seeking success. It will be a fascinating look at their personal struggles in the sport while also relating to the contentious environment of Egypt's political upheavals. Check out some of the teasers below:

WALLBANGERS : "Now Filming" Teaser No. 1 from NileRoadFeatures on Vimeo.

WALLBANGERS : "Crowd Funding" Teaser No. 2 from NileRoadFeatures on Vimeo.

WALLBANGERS : "Crowd Funding" Teaser No. 3 from NileRoadFeatures on Vimeo.

They've already begun filming, but they still need funds to cover travel, accommodation, marketing expenses and post-production fine-tuning. Please contribute as much as you can, even if it's only $5. It will certainly help in our 2020 Olympic Bid.
