Are you or any of your local friends, family or colleagues Moldovan? If so, Tony Hawks would love to hear from you.
With passports at the ready, the first two Moldovan nationals to arrive for the 6.30screening at the Exeter Picturehouse cinema on Thursday, July 5 will be awarded a pair of tickets to watch his new film Playing the Moldovans at Tennis. Tony produced and co-directed the film and will be attending this special screening, which will include a Q&A with the audience after the film. Find out more.
Playing the Moldovans at Tennis is an independent British feature film based on the best-selling book. It tells the true story of Tony Hawks, who attempts to win a silly bet in order to gather material for a light-hearted new book, but becomes embroiled in an uplifting and life-changing adventure.
This eccentric story is both blissfully funny and sincerely heartfelt, as Tony is challenged to track down the entire Moldovan international football team and beat them -one at a time -at tennis!
All profits from the screening and book sales will go towards the care home for severely disabled children that Tony founded in Chisinau, Moldova.
