ABOUT THE FILM
KEI is a documentary that profiles professional soccer player Kei Kamara, who fled to America as a child refugee when Sierra Leone’s civil war ripped apart his family. Soccer was his only outlet. Now, soccer has not only made him a star on three continents, it also gives him a chance to help rebuild the country he loves.
The film was first released as a short documentary, following Kei as he starred with Major League Soccer side Sporting Kansas City and returned home to Sierra Leone for a crucial match with his national team. But when Kei was snapped up on loan by Premier League club Norwich City, filming resumed. Now that Kei has made a permanent move back to the US with Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, production continues.
