About the Movie

"Africa United" tells the extraordinary story of three Rwandan children and their bid to achieve their lifelong dream - to take part in the opening ceremony of he 2010 Football World Cup in Johannesburg. On the way to the vital selection trial, disaster strikes when Fabrice, Dudu and Beatrice board the wrong bus and cross into the Congo; without papers, money or a believable story, they are escorted to a UNICEF refugee camp. But with considerable ingenuity and sass (and a World Cup wall chart for a map), our pint-sized heroes escape the camp and set off through the endless horizons of Africa in pursuit of their dream, picking up along the way a "dream team" of displaced kids, who help them negotiate a series of glorious, dangerous and hilarious adventures. Through their 3000 mile journey, we encounter an Africa few people have ever seen; experience an epic adventure through seven countries; and feel the joy, laughter and hope that comes from making an incredible journey together. "Africa United" is a dramatic, heartfelt and enchanting story set to enthral audiences worldwide.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Road movie, adventure, comedy drama, a will-they-make-it ... no matter what label you give it, Africa United is a unique piece of filmmaking, full of the joys and wounds of Africa – Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, Mar 17, 2012

Fresh: Like its infectious music and indelible African landscape, the sheer enthusiasm of this upbeat film championing friendship and dreams instantly rubs off – Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile, Mar 17, 2012

Fresh: Has enough charm, colour and humour to win us over by extra time. – Neil Smith, Film4, Oct 27, 2010

Fresh: A bouncy crossbreed of Slumdog Millionaire, Enid Blyton and a Unicef commercial; a film that so dearly wants to be adored and adopted that it seems positively churlish to shoo it away. – Xan Brooks, Guardian, Oct 21, 2010
