The video Cricket is based on an interview with Zimbabwean cricketer Henry Olonga on the sport of cricket. Henry Olonga went into exile after demonstrating against the Zimbabwe regime¹s human rights violations, during the Cricket World Cup 2003, hosted in South Africa and Zimbabwe. The video is recorded in Maidstone, England, in August 2003. The video is part of a series of investigations concerning cricket, as an indirect expression of political action in a global arena.
