Football is priceless, literally

A Game of Numbers

Kris Hofman tells the story of the big business Premier League Football. And how is has become a destructive financial imbalance between the mega wealthy stars of the game and their fans. What was once a real working man’s game, is unaffordable to many fans.

It is told with a set of custom illustrated football playing cards that feature drawings of the men and women who ‘make’ the game.
The film was originally directed for the NY Times.

- The Feminism issue: Aftermath
- The food we eat has a story to tell
- The London Olympics: Vote your Greenwash Gold
