Black Diamond (2010) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Black Diamond.
Black Diamond uncovers the mechanisms of the lucrative international trade of hundreds of young African players with their heads full of dreams who are ready for tremendous sacrifices to become the new soccer superstar. Tricked by crooked agents who attract them with false promises of professional careers in Europe or the Middle-East, fenced in dubious -football academies- where they receive no education, these children are the victims of a genuine traffic in which they are treated like commodities. A flagrant violation of human rights inscribed in the system of globalized football.
