Coach Zoran and His African Tigers

Sam Benstead, 75 min, England.

In July 2011, South Sudan becomes an independent country after nearly 50 years of civil war. Shortly after independence, the work begins for Coach Zoran, the man who is to form and train the country's first football team. The charismatic coach has the mindset "win or die" and for both him, team players and the Government of South Sudan, it is about more than just football. We follow both the team and the country, both happy as unhappy moments, with elements of everything from malaria and economic crises to international matches and sheep Champion, which Zoran appointed to the team's mascot.
