Jennifer Vorms-Le Morvan

After working as a director of a network of radio and TV stations, Jennifer opened a bookstore. Her travels took her to Nepal where she met Sunakali and the Pakistani director of a documentary about Sunakali's soccer success.

Nicolas Wild

The creator of many comic books, Nicolas illustrated the famous picture book series Kabul Disco. He has also created comic books about the people he met in a Nepalese refugee camp and has explored many aspects of the nation of Iran through his works.
Reviews

Wild's brightly colored, finely inked illustrations, done in a dynamic, comics-esque style, evoke Nepalese culture in this lightly fantastical portrayal of the Himalayan landscape...This biography is encouraging in its portrayal of a team that fought to improve.
