The documentary “Captain Ali”, directed by Kick-Off production and produced by Peace and Sport and MyCoach, is now available in replay!
As part of the partnership between Peace and Sport and MyCoach, the Kick-Off Production teams traveled to Zaatari, Jordan, to make the documentary “Captain Ali”. The movie traces the journey of Ali Naser Husein, a former Syrian civil engineering student who became head of the coaches administration for the ‘Live Together’ program in Zaatari refugee camp.
The ‘Live Together’ program was cited as an example of an initiative promoting peace and sustainable development in the latest report of the United Nations Secretary-General on the contribution of sport to the 2030 Agenda. It was implemented in partnership with UNHCR, Blumont, WAKO, ITTF, FITEQ, the Jordanian National Olympic Committee and the Government of Monaco.
The documentary “Captain Ali” was broadcasted on December 25 on Infosport + and is now available in replay on myCanal during 3 months : http://www.canalplus.com/sport/captain-ali-night-session/h/15457872_50001
