Film: Kick out World Cup poverty!

FootballHost of the 2010 World Cup, South Africa spent over $4 billion on tournament preparations. But the plight of the country's poor grew worse in the lead-up and during the World Cup.

A  film from War on Want shows what many of South Africa's poor think about the World Cup. Through a series of interviews with people affected directly by the games, including those displaced to remote transit camps, our film offers a different perspective on the world's most widely viewed sporting event.

To hear more from the people interviewed in the film, check our interactive panoramas from inside Blikkiesdorp, one of South Africa's most notorious transit camps for poor people who have been evicted from their homes.

You can also share the film with friends and colleagues on Facebook and Twitter.
