THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Eight different movies showing in one weekend

icon brazilflag21 September ~ Next year's World Cup in Brazil has increased interest in the country. The Brazilian Film Festival of London has given football an important role in its fifth edition, taking place at Odeon Covent Garden between September 27 and October 1. The festival features eight films, such as Santos, 100 Years of Playful Football, told by those who were born, lived and died by Pelé's team. Other movies such as Canary Gauchos, a personal look at the inspiration behind the Brazilian team's national uniform, show the peculiarities of a country popular among fans but still not experienced enough. Tickets are available here.
