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.
