- "Africa United": South Africa hosted the FIFA World Cup this year, but the pride and euphoria surged all the way up the continent. All Africans, especially young ones, embraced the spirit of the game with every new success in the stadiums. Filmmakers leapt at the occasion to showcase dozens of inspiring stories from a continent often beset by bad news. This year’s Festival sees a small collection of uplifting films set in contemporary Africa, but only one grants the World Cup a central role.
