Spike Lee Creates Soccer Film, The Game

Spike Lee Releases Soccer Short Film Shot in Rio

Spike Lee creates soccer short in anticipation of the World Cup.

Filmmaker Spike Lee has created a short film The Game about Brazil's beloved soccer as the World Cup 2014 tournament kicks off Thursday night in Rio with the host nation taking on Croatia in the opening game. The film details the story of a young Brazilian boy who, sporting his country's colors, follows a football through the streets of his favela in pursuit of his ultimate dream – to score a goal in the stadium.

Lee shot the short on location in Brazil's famous city to be the latest film track from Pepsi Max's Beats of the Beautiful Game visual album – a collection of 11 anthemic songs and companion short films, or "filmtracks," that capture the spirit, sights and sounds of soccer.
