The Film

In the wake of Kenya’s 2007 election violence, Kenyans scramble to produce a dramatic TV soap opera series about a fictional soccer team, hoping taboo storylines can bridge deep ethnic divisions. The Team explores whether the lowliest of art forms can achieve the loftiest of ideals: transformative social change.
