Booming in Berlin


Watch the video
Here is the full video I did for Rocketboom while at the Weallspeakfootball.com bloggers house in Berlin.

It is about the Street Football World Championshipsthat took place as part of the World Cup festivities. The event was a great counterpoint to the commercialism of the World Cup. These kids all come from underprivileged circumstances from all over the world and were playing for nothing more than the chance to travel and love of the game. It was really interesting to film them and learn a little bit about how football is helping to bring messages of hope from some very troubled areas of the world. If these kid's views represent the future of their respective countries, then it is time for me to become an official optimist.

A good blog post on the event can be seen here World Cup Blog

that's really incredible! thanks for showing an important side of the World Cup events that has been overlooked by main stream media. The demonstration of peaceful interactions of individuals on both sides of the fence in war torn countries, and the inclusion of women is really inspiring. thanks.

that was a shit-hot video graham! loved it, great edit, great ethos, great contrasts and enough interviewer viewpoint to keep it edgy (as opposed to 'ahh, isn;t it nice to see everyone getting along!)

be well
