I am looking for two Chinese films. Our library would prefer on DVD with
English subtitles but would settle for subtitled videos.

Jing du qiu xia = Soccer heroes (1987)
Summary: An exciting soccer match between two foreign teams draws a big
crowd in Beijing in the late Qing dynasty, but the Chinese get angry when some
foreign trouble makers make fun of them. With some skillful players soccer hero
Zhou Tian puts together a team called "Black Dragon". After strenuous secret
training they defeat the foreign team. People are elated with their victory,
but the team members face pressure because they have upset the Qing dynasty

Nu lan wu hao = Woman basketball player no. 5 (1957)
Summary: Story about a trainer and his star player who has a wrong
concept of the sport due to the influences of her family and friends. The
trainer works with her patiently to develop her skills and her pride in herself
and her country.

Thank you in advance for any help.
