Without a Fight DVD

100% of DVD sales go directly to Carolina for Kibera’s Sports Association!

Without a Fight 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.  The film made its World Premiere at the 11 MM Festival in Berlin, Germany in March 2012 and its North American Premiere at the Full Frame Documentary Festival in Durham, NC in April 2012.

CFK will be holding Without a Fight community and university screenings throughout the year.  Learn more about hosting a screening!

Without a Fight is a collaboration of the UNC Center for Global Initiatives, Carolina for Kibera (CFK), and Chasing the Mad Lion Productions.
