Coach Zoran and His African Tigers


A native of Pirot in Serbia, Zoran has had an extraordinary career, coaching in countries such as Bangladesh, Phillipines, Sudan and Yemen. But nothing could prepare him for attempting to build a team from scratch in a nation rated as amongst the most undeveloped in the world. The film follows Zoran’s team over its first year.
Under intense pressure, the football team compete in their first ever major international tournament, overcoming malaria, death and poverty. Amidst the chaos a fascinating portrait emerges of the birth of a nation.
