Join Africa Agenda for a joyous movie that has been called Africa’s Slumdog Millionaire. Buy Tickets Here
The extraordinary story of three Rwandan kids who walk 3000 miles to the Soccer World Cup in South Africa. Using a sack load of ingenuity and sass (and a World Cup wall chart for a map), our pint-sized protagonists set off through the endless horizons of Africa in pursuit of an unlikely dream. And as they walk they gather a tribe – a ragamuffin team – of broken and brilliant characters who help them negotiate a way through a series of glorious, dangerous, hilarious and often bizarre situations. Through these kids, we will encounter an Africa few people ever get to see; experience the hard reality of an epic walk through seven countries; as well as the joy, laughter and hope – ‘the ubuntu’ – that comes from making an incredible journey together.
We will start the film off with a short introduction to African Soccer (football) and conclude the movie with a talkback to explore some of its major themes.
All funds raised from the film will go to Africa Agenda and Denver Open Media has graciously offered to host us.
So if you can’t make it to Africa this Summer, do the next best thing!
We look forward to seeing you.
