Cast & Crew
Following the fraudulent 2007 elections in Kenya, ethnic conflict broke out in this formerly stable nation. Supporters of the main candidates clashed over the disputed result. Fifteen hundred Kenyans died and more than half a million ended up homeless. Kofi Annan mediated a settlement, and it seemed that peace had returned. But it was clear that this country, with its many different tribes and ethnic groups each with its own interests, was a volatile powder keg. The soap opera "The Team" sought to address a younger audience on the subject. The creators developed a cast with representatives from as many sections of society as possible. The storylines, which concern the ups and downs of a mixed football team, sought to spark a dialogue about Kenyan society, and in particular, the risks of tribalism. Here, we hear from actors, the producer, the scriptwriter, the director and the cameraman of "The Team". The relevance of their mission comes into sharp focus when tragedy strikes.
