Tin Town - Sport for Solidarity World Cup sports documentary


In June 2010, the (men’s) football World Cup finally arrived in Africa. Yet the “rules” for hosting the world’s most popular event are often clouded by controversy and the event itself is often marked by injustice, corruption, and exploitation “on the ground.” The 2010 World Cup in South Africa was no exception. Thousands of families already living in dire straits were brutally sentenced to a life of poverty, as they were evicted to tin shacks miles from their homes, hidden from the television screens and the world’s media attention. Tin Town follows local residents through police brutality, family separation, and their struggle to reclaim the people’s game.
