No sooner had the World Cup draw been dusted off yesterday from Moscow, than the British press started laying into the destinations England will play –
Not that they’d waited for that of course, just a few days before, blaring all over western media, here represented by the Guardian:
And of course, the information war against Russia’s World Cup began long before that even, of which I’ve written here.
So the information war is truly on. My plan – to visit each of the 11 host cities in Russia, and make a film from there, in English, and Russian. Not a promo-film. Real, factual reportage, showing you the reality of each city. As you know, all my work is completely crowdfunded, so if you support it, it’ll happen!
And this, my 3rd World Cup by the way, so there’s something to compare!
