Aftrica United – a must see film

Africa United (in UK cinemas 22nd October 2010) tells the extraordinary story of three Rwandan children and their dream to take part in the opening ceremony of the football World Cup. 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.

First and foremost Africa United is a dramatic, heartfelt and enchanting story set to enthral family audiences worldwide. But it also provides a fantastic opportunity to raise important issues with a wide audience. Two lead characters are AIDS orphans and the friends they make along the way include a child soldier and a child in prostitution.
