Sur la jacquette : Dans un bidonville de Johannesburg en Afrique du Sud, un jeune homme de 19 ans se fait appeler "Tsotsi" : "voyou", "gangster" dans le jardon des ghettos. Orphelin sans nom, sans passé, sans ambition, il vit au jour le jour à la fête d'un groupe de marginaux en proie à la violence et au chaos. Un soir, loin du bidonville, dans une banlieue aisée, Tsotsi sort son arme et agresse une femme avant de s'échapper au volant de sa voiture. Quelques instants plus tard, un bébé pleure sur la banquette arrière

"Africa United tells the extraordinary story of three Rwandan children and their bid to take part in the opening ceremony of the 2010 Football World Cup in Johannesburg. Our pint-sized heroes set off in pursuit of their dream, picking up along the way a 'dream team' of displaced kids, who help them negotiate a series of thrilling and hilarious adventures. During their 3000 mile journey, we encounter an Africa few people ever see; experience an epic adventure across seven countries; and feel the joy, laughter and hope that comes from making an incredible journey together"--Footprint Films Ltd. website
More than just a game : on an island beyond hope football was their salvation : a true story( Visual )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Told through the stories of five former prisoners, this is the story of political activists sent to Robben Island prison in the 1960s who rise above their incarceration by creating a football league and finding an outlet for their passion and commitment to discipline through the Beautiful Game. In the energetic, dangerous urban landscape of the late 1950s, five youngsters are weeks or even days away from being arrested. Their backgrounds are as diverse as their personalities, but all share an activist\2019s zeal and a desire to change the racist status quo. ANTHONY SUZE is a hothead and athlete, a world away from the cool, introspective activism of MARK SHINNERS or the steady, stocky rugby-playing LIZO SITOTO. Others have come to the struggle in their own way: SEDICK ISAACS, the impassive bomb-making schoolteacher; MARCUS SOLOMONS the non-aligned guerrilla. But all are targets of the state, and all are destined to spend their youth on Robben Island
