Insights, Strategy and the Idea

By November 2013, Tunisians’ morale was at its lowest, people were disillusioned by the continuing political and economic crisis outset three years earlier with the advent of the revolution, which quickly raised tensions and social divisions. Tunisians were more concerned about the country’s situation than anything else... There was thus a risk the National-Football-Team’s qualification for the 2014 World Cup might go unnoticed. As Tunisie-Telecom is the official sponsor of the National-Football-Team, the brand had to react and express its support to the Carthage-Eagles and federate Tunisians around the players who needed their support to qualify for the World-Cup. The idea was to make a documentary that looks back on the National-Team’s epic history in regards to the World-Cup, its realizations and qualifications and revive Tunisian football’s biggest names, as well as stage anonymous supporters who would explain to the Tunisian people the reasons to believe in a fifth qualification.
