March 27 is day five of the Thinking Football Film Festival, the cinema and football festival organised by the Athletic Club Foundation and Sala BBK and sponsored by Euskaltel.
At 6 pm, Chris Cashman’s film Club Frontera (USA, 2016) will be screened, which tells the brief but intense story of Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles (the Xolos) in the Mexican League, which has had an enormous impact on the famous Mexican city. Players, fans and political representatives of the two sides of the US-Mexico border share their personal stories as "Xolos", while explaining the importance of the club to the unification and rejuvenation of the city after it won the Mexican title in 2012. After the screening of the film, the public will be able to chat with the film’s director Chris Cashman and producer Dave Gulick.
Later, at 8:00 pm, the documentary Celtic Soul (Canada, 2016) by Michael McNamara will be screened, a road movie that traces the journey that the Canadian actor, screenwriter and director Jay Baruchel and journalist Eoin O’Callaghan made from Canada to Glasgow, driven by their passion for Celtic Football Club. A journey to their roots, travelling across Canada, Ireland and Scotland... and to the centre of the pitch in a magical place: Celtic Park.
After the screening of the film, the film’s director, Michael McNamara, and one of its stars, Eoin O’Callaghan, will chat with the audience, accompanied by a legend of Celtic Football Club, the Greek striker Georgios Samaras.
