Vik Muniz has made images out of everything from sugar to confetti to trash, and with World Cup fever reaching a rolling boil in his native Brazil, the artist has turned his attentions to the object of his nation's collective obsession, the football itself.First, the 52-year-old Muniz had to create his own ball, bone white on one side and pitch black on the other, to act as a sort of pixel. The real difficulty was to decide what to draw with the balls, and the documentary chronicles Muniz's struggle to find a football-related image that didn't feel like the logo of a sportswear label.The movie also explores sport as a vehicle for social change, examining the role of organized football fan clubs in Egypt's revolution and the massive street protests that swept Brazil during last year's World Cup dry-run, the Confederations Cup.
