A scene from "The Power of the Game".
Heads up if you are in New York, tickets for the Tribeca Film Festival are on sale today. This years festival features several soccer-themed films including the much-talked Michael Apted (Gorky Park) film "The Power of the Game ". Also showing this year is "Sons of Sakhnin United" (about an mixed Jewish & Arab soccer team in Israel), and "The Road to San Diego" (a rural Argentinian makes an epic journey to visit an ailing Maradona in the hospital).
Seems like every year TFF is down with a few footie flicks; did you know that they premiered "Goal: The Dream Begins" and "Once in a Lifetime" both here? I highly recommend coming through if you have the chance as the non-soccer movies are pretty amazing as well.
