Zico came to Iceland from Marocco to seek his fortune. After ten years Zico becomes bankrupt, meaning he can't work anymore. Left desperate and depressed Zico decides to bring life to his amateur team called Africa United and take them into the semi-professional 3rd division. He calls upon immigrants all-over Iceland, players from Marocco, Nigeria, Columbia, Serbia, Kosovo, Gambia and Guinea to help realize his vision. Written by

I don't know if Africa United is a documentary or not - I saw it in Karlov Vary FILM FESTIVAL this summer with my friends. I can say that it is a good film, a little to fast and too quick sometimes, but funny to watch.
Characters are all maybe a little black and white (sometime literally)
maybe they are true life characters, they seem to be. And if so, I
think God must have a good sense of humor when creating people. I am not a great football fan - I used to be when Poland could play football (long time ago) - but I like in this film the cameraman goes to many countries and you can see a lot from where characters are from.
One other thing I want to mention, if anybody knows about the soundtrack from the film. The music is great but I cannot find any music from the film. Also if anybody knows if it will show in Poland?
Anyway, just a very funny film, also if you don't like football.
