Remember “The African Game” the book of striking football images published by powerHouse Books (sponsored by Puma) in 2006? Photographer Andrew Dosunmu and writer Knox Robinson traveled to Cameroon, Senegal, Togo, Cote D’Ivoire, Angola, Ghana, Tunisia, and Egypt (which hosted the 2006 African Nations Cup). It seems a few weeks ago Dosunmu posted a short video documentary online that mixes video footage and photographic images from that project. (It’s unsure if its trailer for a longer documentary. I’ve been unable to contact Andrew to confirm that.) The short video is important for one reason: It gives a vivid sense of how fanatical Africans are about football. Watch it in Full Screen. It is worth it.
