World Cup Madness with Johan Kramer & BAM

Well, madness isn't actually the right word, because Kramer's 2003 film The Other Final, is really a meditative and thoughtful look at the quieter side of international soccer, documenting a match between the world's lowest raking teams, Bhutan and Montserrat, played the same day of the 2002 World Cup. But the film is being including in the Brooklyn Academy of Music's "Soccer Fever!" film series in anticipation of the World Cup, so we have to use "madness" at least once in the post. Anyway, it is playing three time on June 3rd at BAM, in the Fort Greene neighborhood of Brooklyn. Check out the trailer below and here's the link for tickets and info on the BAM website.
