Lusaka Sunrise, a video about the Grassroot Soccer HIV/AIDS prevention education program in Africa, was a “Featured Video” on YouTube this week. The short was filmed and produced by Silas Hagerty, founder of Smooth Feather Productions and former student of the first University of Vermont travel-study course to Batey Libertad.

The Fútbol para la Vida program at Batey Libertad, Saman, and other partner communities in the Dominican Republic is part of the international Grassroot Soccer network. The first GRS-inspired film produced by Silas and ‘lil Jon Erickson entitled Freedom for a Day highlighted the university’s pilot project of the GRS curriculum with the community of Batey Libertad.

Below please enjoy both Lusaka Sunrise and Freedom for a Day below. Congratulations Silas!
