Men in the Arena

J.R. Biersmith

It’s a survival story, a human rights story, and a rare sports journey principally shot and produced in Kenya, Somalia, and the United States. Men in the Arena is the culmination of three years of work to capture the Somali story through the eyes of footballing friends bound by a shared dream to inspire their countrymen. What happens to them is nothing short of miraculous. The hope for the film is that it will begin to illuminate the power the dreamers have to inspire a generation.
