Robben Island: A Greater Goal

Saturday night U.S. television sports channel ESPN premiered a short film on South Africa's Robben Island as part of its Outside The Lines series.* Through interviews and footage of the country's most infamous prison, 'home' to revolutionary opponents of apartheid, the documentary charts the relationship of the formation of a prison soccer association to the crafting of the 1996 South African constitution - one based on both the rule of law and the practice of justice.
