Peace Film Series: “Without a Fight” (Kenya, 2012)

November 2, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Without a Figh20151020_Without-a-Fight-film-219x250t is a feature-length documentary film that explores how soccer can facilitate social change in Kibera, one of Africa’s largest slums. Footage of violent clashes fueled by polarizing national presidential elections is intertwined with profiles of youth from different religious and ethnic backgrounds as they navigate daily life and prepare for the final championship soccer game of the season. The film provides a glimpse, often a very positive one, into an Africa few have seen. It attempts to break stereotypes associated with people who live in extreme poverty while depicting sports as a tool that could be used to prevent violence among at-risk youth. Following the screening of the film, there will be a short discussion session with Rye Barcott and Osborn Kwena.

This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Amy Cole at 919.843.4887 for more information.
