Diego Luna’s new short film – a lovely shot piece set in his hometown, Mexico City, highlighting the power that football has to bring joy and youthfulness to any community. It is well worth a watch:
The inspirational short tells the story of a group of young-at-heart senior citizens who form the Liga de Interclubes de Fútbol Soccer Amateur, to discard the weight of life and play the sport they love, showing us the joy the timeless game of football provides – no matter the age.
Having starred in the likes of Milk and The Terminal, Luna recently took to directing (with his first film César Chávez being released earlier this year) and has now tried his hand at short film with this filmtrack – the latest release from Pepsi Max’s Beats of the Beautiful Game visual album – an exclusive collection of 11 anthemic songs and companion short films, or ‘filmtracks,’ that capture the spirit, sights and sounds of football.
You may remember we featured the artwork for this last week. That’s been created by our fave’s ilovedust.
The film coincides with the official release of Rita Ora’s track “I Will Never Let You Down (Switch Remix)” – a fresh remix of her summer smash hit – which features in the short film, playing to the keen football players as they make the journey to the big game.
Ace isn’t it?
