Today, March 19, Thinking Football 2018 continues with the screening of two documentaries. At 6:00 pm, The Workers Cup (Adam Sobel, 2018) will be screened, a moving documentary about a football championship between foreign workers working on the construction of the 2022 World Cup stadiums in Qatar. The documentary shows the living conditions of these workers, playing with the contrast between the majesty of the stadiums in which they compete for the cup, their dreams and the reality of their daily lives.
Then, at 8:00 pm, The Lane (Luke Mellows, 2018) will be screened, a 50-minute medium-length documentary that captures the 118-year story of White Hart Lane, the North London stadium, which rose from humble beginnings to become a landmark in the city. The Lane tells the unique story of a special club and stadium and the universal story of a group of people united by a shield that they love, using an impressive archive of footage and interviews with fans and legends of the Lane, including Cliff Jones, Pat Jennings, Glenn Hoddle, Ledley King and Ossie Ardiles, current players and the current manager (Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Mauricio Pochettino).
After the screening, the director of the film will be with two Spurs legends, Ledley King and Osvaldo Ardiles, to chat with the audience.
All screenings will take place at Sala BBK, with free entrance until all seats are full.
