World Cup Soccer In Africa: Who Really Wins?

For four action-packed weeks in June and July 2010, the largest international television audience ever to follow a single event will be watching the FIFA Soccer World Cup in South Africa. But what will happen after the trophy is lifted, the caravans move on, and the dogs stop barking?

International heavyweights like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, construction workers, FIFAs Communications Director, street traders, politicians, and sports celebrities wade into the debate. National pride, corruption and even murder feature in this astonishingly candid film which peels back the glossy media veneer to expose the real concerns of ordinary South Africans: hopes about jobs, the eviction of school children to make way for construction company offices, the removal of an inconvenient community.
