The African Game Trailer
My people, I must implore you to check out the trailer above for The African Game, a visually striking documentary that goes deep into the heart of soccer on the African continent. The man responsible is acclaimed director/photographer Andrew Dosunmu who’s probably best known for his work in fashion and for cranking out music videos for the likes of Common, Manic Street Preachers, Talib Kweli and Youssou N’Dour. He is also responsible for the beautiful The African Game book of photography that came out just ahead of the last World Cup.
Even if your soccer allegiances lay securely on another continent you should still watch this clip. Dosunmu has an amazing eye and the vision he puts forth even in this short trailer is just unreal. Colorful, compelling stuff; crucial pre-South Africa 2010 viewing.
