Everything is Practice: A Different Perspective on Soccer

Everything is Practice: A Different Perspective on Soccer

Everything is Practice is a  black-and-white short film, which documents filmmaker and Oscar nominee Spike Lee coaching his son’s soccer league practice in New York City’s Chinatown.  The film guides viewers through the parks and ball fields of New York City, and blends Spike Lee’s distinctive narrative voice with the patter of kicked soccer balls, the chatter of sideline spectators and the constant sounds of the honking, screeching grind of New York City.

Lee’s narrative describes coaching children, his son’s soccer practices, the relationships various people have with soccer and simply being a parent.  The film gives the viewer a new perspective about soccer, very different from the glitz, action and glamor that one sees in the broadcasts of World Cup games.  Behind every goal and every moment in life, everything is practice indeed.

My Father: The Visual Poetry of Loving Care

My Father: The Visual Poetry of Loving Care

My Father is a beautiful documentary short film by the German filmmaker Christine Schmitthenner, who presently works as a television camerawoman for Crete TV in Greece.  The documentary is a wordless short film about caring for an aging father, an elegantly visual poem saying so much through exquisitely detailed photography that captures the depths of great human emotion. The musical soundtrack is After the Fall, composed by Pete Calandra.
