Still image from More Than A Game

Part of "The Call of Africa" series. Explains the deeper meaning of the "donga," ritualized stick-fighting bouts of the Surma culture; sacred Senegalese wrestling, an ancient village tradition that has been met with immense enthusiasm in the city; weekly wrestling matches in the Sudanese melting pot of Khartoum, rituals of cohesion rather than confrontation; Tuareg camel races, symbols of communal unity and strength; the plentiful music and dancing that accompanies African festivals; and soccer, which in Ghana involves the spells of sorcerers. NOTE: Contains some nudity and mild violence. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
