Check out this preview for Stevan Lovgren’s documentary-in-progress on football in Africa. It looks like it will be a wonderful film, which should be ready sometime this Spring in the lead up to the 2010 World Cup.
You can read a bit more about the film on
an earlier post on this site and at Lovgren’s blog.
