The best world player

Since twenty years the journalist Michael Zumstein travels towards Africa. His interest for Africa begins after following studies at the Vevey School of Photography because he wanted to break with the photographing technical teaching he has learnt and also changing the world. Michael Zumstein will visit the RDC, the South  Soudanese, the RCA for the French press (Le Monde, Télérama, ...) and for foreign press (Newsweek, ...). "The best world player" project begins when he finds himself in the RCA for making a report about the uprisings in this country (anti - Séléka versus Balaka). One day Michael Zumstein was inside the Njoh village for making pictures and he remarks a young armed rebell wearing a football vest with the name of the Spanish player Fernando Torres written on. He names this scene "War scene with vest" and decides to speak about the state of Africa. Michael Zumstein show us that a world exist between these anonymous wearing vests with names of famous football players written on and the real football players who earn many money. These anonymous must resolve many challenges all the days like working, travelling or staying alive. "The best world player" supported by the CNAP and the Volkart Stiftung Winterthur underlines the stories of these anonymous who have choosen famous names for escaping from their uggly daily lives and building new lives.
