Bounce: How the Ball Taught the World to Play

From Brazilian slums to dusty Congolese villages, from neolithic Scottish islands to modern football fields, BOUNCE explores the little-known origins of sports played with a ball. The film crosses time, languages and continents to discover how the ball has captured our attention and fuelled our passion to compete. A mixture of science, history and cultural essay, BOUNCE presents a deeper look into the ball, investigating the reasons why we play and helping us to understand our universal connection to the ball.
