The Team

.

Following Kenya’s 2007 Presidential election, which threatened to push the country to civil war, the international community intervened and a fragile peace was brokered. An alternative local response is the creation of a taboo-breaking TV soap opera, “The Team,” following the struggles of a co-ed multi-ethnic football squad to overcome their differences, both on and off the pitch. There’s inherent drama behind any TV production: will deadlines be met; will it be good? But here the stakes are exponentially higher: if you don’t captivate an audience, you risk losing your country.

Press
