These three interlinked films look at contemporary football as part of a global culture. Despite the mass appeal of the game through media networks, football culture remains one of grassroots communities with individual identities. However, the places where the films were made, Egypt, Brazil and Palestine, highlight local conflicts with external forces where football translates into the political. The films were made were made in quick succession from 2012 to 2015 where political situations draw in local football fans into the conflict.
The structure and approach to the events in the film are relayed through an assemblage of various visual media formats. This aesthetic overlays text panels to provide limited context to the visual materials and position the viewer to consider beyond the frame. No voiceover is used in order to resist directing the viewer as film images operate on an instinctive, visceral level. The meta-documentary format calls into question the mediation of events as the viewer is invited to consider their subjective role in artifice of objectivity.
