Today, March 6, Thinking Football Film Festival 2018 continues with the screening of two films.
At 6:30 pm “Don’t Take Me Home" will be screened. Directed by Jonny Owen, director of the film “I Believe In Miracles” on Clough’s incredible Nottingham Forest, which has already been screened at a prior edition of Thinking Football, “Don’t Take Me Home” tells the story of the Welsh national football team, from the tragic loss of its manager Gary Speed up to 2016 UEFA European Championship, when they reached the semi-finals after 58 years away from major international tournaments. It is an exciting film, in which both players and fans show their passion for their national colours and the hope that the dream that they were experiencing at the tournament would never end.
Then at 8:00 pm, “El Equipo De Mi Barrio" (My Neighbourhood Team) (Rafa de los Arcos, 2018) will be screened, a film that portrays the passion and efforts of those running Unión Club Ceares, a club from Gijón which is owned by the fans, in their daily struggle for different football. After the screening of the film, its director, Rafael de los Arcos, and the President of UC Ceares, Alberto Álvarez, will chat with the audience.
Admission to both sessions is free until capacity is reached.
The Thinking Football Film Festival is organised by the Athletic Club Foundation with the collaboration of Sala BBK and sponsorship of Euskaltel. BCD Travel, Hotel Meliá Bilbao and Comunitac are also sponsors of this edition.
