    SYNOPSIS

    It is ten years now that Gabriel Stauring, US citizen and founder of ONG i-ACT, is working on the project of a documentary film. Though he’s not a film director, he has collected hours of shootings, building a full line up of characters and a detailed treatment.
    In 2005 Gabriel moved to Africa for the first time, to give his help to more than 280.000 refugees from Darfur who had settled in the refugee camps of Chad. This unheard-of humanitarian crisis still continues today, though it has never been front-page news nor does it now, as the new Europe migrant crisis is covering all media.
    Gabriel soon realized the world was not interested in hearing stories of war, poverty and hunger. To raise attention, he had to search for a unique, positive story, and to share it with the world.
    He took an handycam and started filming, soon realizing most of his shootings showed people of all ages playing football, everywhere, with any weather condition, without shoes, on inconceivable football fields and with any kind of ball.
    In 2011, to raise attention on Darfur crisis, Gabriel founded Darfur United, a football team made up of refugees from the 12 different camps, and his project became more precise: making a film about Darfur United team.
    Since then, he is following with his camera the training and life of his film’s characters: Moubarag and Ismail, team players who now live in Sweden (where they asked for asylum in 2014) or Suleyman and Mubarak, who still live in the refugee camps of Chad.
    “Darfur United” has already competed in 2012 and 2014 for the Football World Cup.
    No, not the prestigious FIFA World Cup, but the Conifa one, a tournament for unrecognized states and ethnic groups.
    But now it’s not a good moment for Darfur United: the film project is at a dead point and the team has not been selected for the World Cup 2016, a bad blow for Gabriel and his friends.
    More than ever, his film project looks now like a perfect metaphor of all Darfuri refugee people, in the middle between a success story and a never-ending limbo.
    Gabriel wants to react, he wants to organize something even greater and powerful than “Darfur United” football team.

    When Gabriel Stauring landed in Chad for the first time, in 2005, he couldn’t imagine he would have founded a football team able to compete
    for the World Cup.
    Today, his attempts to end a 10-years long documentary project about all-refugee team Darfur United become a film-within-the-film and the metaphor of a 10-years long and unclosed migrant crisis, now more actual than ever.
    An happy and winning story with a bitter taste, as the film, and football itself, are the only possible key to raise international attention on Darfur.
