Sound On Sight Radio #210: World Cup Of Movies

- Advertisement -



World Cup season is of course underway, and here at Sound on Sight we’ll be taking a look at three very different cinematic representations of the sport this side of the Atlantic calls “soccer.” First up is the American documentary Once In a Lifetime, which dissects the birth and lifespan of soccer as a popular phenomenon in American professional sport and specifically the rise of its most famous team, the New York Cosmos. The second is the latest film Iran’s Jafar Panahi, the human rights parable Offside, which chronicles the attempts by a group of young female soccer fans to sneak into Iran’s qualifying match for the 2004 World Cup, an event they are forbidden to attend. Last up is Serbian director Emir Kustarica’s documentary Maradona by Kustarica, in which we spend 90 minutes in the company of soccer’s biggest ego, Diego Maradona.
