This polished documentary, narrated by Terence Stamp, is part celebration of African soccer's triumphs and part reflection on the yet unfulfilled realization of Pele's famous prediction that an African nation would take the World Cup by the end of the 20th century.
This screening kicks off a series of events being organized by the African Activist Association around the topic: Soccer and Nationalism in Africa.
