From the streets to the fields

80 minutes


“Sport has the power to inspire and unite people”. While the Spanish squad made history in the first World Cup on the African continent a junior championship took place near by.  Three of the program participants got to meet their soccer idols and have their lives changed. The film shows the impact of apartheid and one programs solution: uniting boys of all colors through soccer.  This reflects the dream of social cohesion that inspired the words of Nelson Mandela.
