Athlete Spotlight: TANZANIA ALBINO UNITED FOOTBALL TEAM
Oscar Haule is a Tanzanian businessman. He’s not an albino, but he has a vision for albinos. This is the story of a unique football team. In recent years, albinos have been murdered in Tanzania, some as young as six months old, while others have been attacked with machetes and their limbs cut off while alive. Oscar Haule is a Tanzanian businessman. He’s not an albino, but he has a vision for albinos. He wants the world to recognize that albinos are just like everybody else; they can do what others do; they are human beings and should not be killed. He decided that this message could be best spread by example and exposure- and in a world fueled for so many by soccer, what better way than a soccer team with albino players?
Football offers them a rare tool to undermine the limitations imposed upon them as they travel into the heart of the areas with the highest numbers of Albino killings, one of which is Mwanza. The documentary effectively balances dark insights into the inhuman treatment of Albinos with uplifting scenes of the teams progression from failure to success.
The team members’ mischievous smiles along with their animated coach, found the audience laughing one minute while silently transfixed to the screen the next.
