“The Soccer Project”: Pick Up Soccer Around the Globe
“The Soccer Project” is the story of two soccer players who quit their 9-to-5 jobs and take off around the globe exploring the less glorified side of soccer: pick up games and impromptu contests.
In Bolivia, the duo plays with inmates in a prison courtyard; in Palestine, they play with a sixteen-year-old girl who defies tradition and plays on the streets with the local boys; and in Kenya, with moonshine brewers in the slums of Nairobi. The team travels to over twenty countries and tells the stories of the people they meet through the game. Below is a 15 minute trailer with the film set to be completed by the summer of 2009.
