Jess Kohl is the rising star directing talent behind a motivational film shot for the first episode of Nike’s new ‘From the Grounds Up’ series of films. The director captures the moving story of Hackney Wick FC founder Bobby Kasanga.

The film starring Bobby Kasanga and members of his football team Hackney Wick FC, forms part of a campaign to launch a new Nike app. The Production Company was Girls in Film and PRETTYBIRD UK.

After being released from prison in 2015, Bobby Kasanga decided to change his life and his community through football. Bobby founded Hackney Wick FC with the help and support of Hackney’s residents. The club has grown from one men’s team to nearly two dozen teams for men, women, and youth in less than five years.
