I cannot wait to see this film. 'Pelada' meaning street-soccer in Brazil is a documentary film about the people that play soccer all over the world; from proper fields, to concrete basketball courts, to salt flats. I have never played soccer properly and even my attempt at kicking a ball around has been poor at best. What I love about this game is that it is played everywhere...it's truly a global passion. Created by two former American college soccer players, the two travel around the world from South America to Japan playing and documenting pick up games. I'm so inspired already by the photos and trailer!
