Tin Can Town

Tin Can Town Tin Can Town

In June 2010, the (men’s) football World Cup finally arrived in Africa. Yet the world’s most popular event is often marked by injustice, corruption, and exploitation “on the ground”. The World Cup in South Africa was no exception. Thousands of families already living in dire straits were brutally sentenced to a life of poverty, as they were evicted to tin shacks miles from their homes, hidden from the television screens and the world’s media attention. Tin Can Town follows local residents through police brutality, family separation and their struggle to reclaim the people’s game.
