Africa United (Trailer)

Movies

A band of pre-teen misfits from Rwanda try to get to the World Cup in South Africa to get a player to the opening games in one week.

 In this exciting adventure tale, a group of misfit children trying to make it to the opening games at the World Cup, from Rwanda to South Africa in a week, take the wrong bus. Given Refugee status in the Congo, they have to escape the child soldier recruiters (one of them daringly portrayed by former child soldier now activist, Emmanuel Jal), and sneak past border patrol in every next country. This children's adventure covers parts of Africa rarely seen, especially in this context. The result is a beautifully shot and treated film, with a high entertainment factor, charming young actors and enough gravitas to be enjoyable for everyone!
