South Sudan vs. the world: The birth of a national football team
Dark clouds had gathered over Juba’s renovated football stadium, but for the 15,000 people who had turned up in South Sudan’s capital it was a time for celebration.
A little under 24 hours after South Sudan became the newest country on earth after declaring its independence from Khartoum — a bloody battle it had waged intermittently since the 1950s — the first true test of the fledgling republic took place.
On July 10, South Sudan played its very first international football match, becoming not just the youngest nation on earth, but the youngest national football team too.
“Ger: To Be Separate document’s one man’s odyssey from child soldier to refugee to Hollywood actor and international top model, and his amazing journey back home as he votes for the first time for a new Sudan and celebrates its division. The release of this documentary will mark the beginning of Ger’s mission to help rebuild his nation, bringing educational institutions and healthcare facilities to his home village.”
