I recently had the chance to watch Pelada, a remarkable soccer documentary that follows two Americans on a journey around the world in pursuit of pick-up games. It’s a simple premise, but the experiences and people they encounter around the globe are wonderful to watch. If you consider yourself a soccer fan, this is one documentary that you must seek out.
When the film recently made its South Florida debut, I was fortunate to catch the film at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood with some of the soccer royalty from the southern tip of this great country. In the audience were Thomas Rongen, Fernando Clavijo, Miami FC, Phil Schoen, Ray Hudson and many others. Thankfully, I had a chance to capture Ray Hudson’s introduction to the film and I also interviewed the star of the film, Gwendolyn Oxenham.
Below you’ll find a 15-minute edition of the EPL Talk Podcast which features both the Hudson introduction and the conversation with Oxenham.
Wherever you live in the world, try to watch the unforgettable film. More information can be found at http://pelada-movie.com/
