On Safer Ground

A beautiful and touching documentary from Directors Stuart Ryan and Hedley Dindoyal.  It follows a young team of football playing teenagers as they traveled from Laos to compete at the Gothia Youth World Cup 2010 in Sweden. Among others, it also profiles Manophet, Gareth Carter and the non-profit organization in Phonsavan, Laos, called Lone Buffalo.

This film documents their journey on and off the pitch as they win over hearts and minds and also how they deal with being the first Lao football team ever to compete outside of Asia.

It's a movie that's filled with love and support, high hopes, fun, success, along with a poignant and sad tragedy that hits the team.  Watch the trailer (English with Lao subtitles).
