Power of football

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

streetfootballworld teamed up with 11mm to once again present a film that featured the power of football to inspire social change.

The Other Kids, directed by Pablo de la Chica, tells the story of young footballers in Uganda and their dreams for football and for life. Despite the massive challenges they face in their lives, football is their inspiration - pushing them to better themselves on the pitch and in the classroom. Their idols from the Spanish national team, such as Fernando Torres and Juan Mata, also feature in the touching documentary, reflecting on what football meant to them and so many children around the world.

Pablo de la Chica was present in Berlin for the screening of the film, sharing his experiences from the very personal journey he took with "The Other Kids".
