This video is part of the Uprooted multimedia project:
As a whole, Uprooted documents the effects of Venezuelans forced to flee to Colombia as a result of the political and economic crisis in their home country.
I worked with my team to share the story of Vinotinto Fútbol Club, a soccer team of primarily Venezuelan immigrants. Although the story is about soccer on the surface, following the players for a week and a half allowed my team to uncover the unexpected rewards that soccer brings them.
The project includes four other documentaries, photo stories and five written stories accompanied by infographics.
