THE DOCUMENTARY

 

FILMED IN THE HEART OF LIMPOPO, SOUTH AFRICA, “ALIVE & KICKING” TAKES US ON AN EMOTIONAL JOURNEY AS NEGLECTED GRANDMOTHERS TAKE ON THE GAME OF SOCCER. THROUGH THEIR CAMARADERIE ON THE FIELD, THE GRANNIES ERUPT INTO LAUGHTER AND SONG TO FUEL THEIR SINGULAR STRUGGLE TOWARDS DECENT LIVES AND A TASTE OF JOY IN AN OTHERWISE HARSH AND DESOLATE WORLD.
