Sri Lankan Team Handball Movie Starts Production

Production has started in Sri Lanka on a feature film about the infamous Sri Lankan National Handball team which disappeared in Germany in 2004. The Sri Lanka team, which was not really a National team and included players who had never played the game before, duped German authorities into granting them visas for a Handball tour in Germany. The “team” reportedly made their way to Italy, where there is a Sri Lankan emigrant community. The film is being directed by Uberto Pasolini, who is best well known for producing the UK film, “The Full Monty.” The film is tentatively entitled, “No F’ing Handball” and is an Italian/German production.
