"South Africa: The party is over". South Africa after the 2010 World Cup (Video, 45min)

I just came across this very interesting 45min documentary about South Africa after the 2010 World Cup. Al Jazeera's Rageh Omaar travels the country and talks to South Africans from various backgrounds and perspectives about their life during and particularly after the most succesfull FIFA World Cup to date.


In June 2010, the eyes of the world were on South Africa as it hosted the FIFA World Cup. For ordinary South Africans, it was also a month-long reprieve from the usual bad news about crime, corruption, and poverty that has plagued the nation in recent years. But it is only now, months after the World Cup has been over, that South Africa can finally assess how it moves forward and how it overcomes the huge number of challenges it faces.
