The Russian Cup

Anne Rethmann, a fellow student of mine and currently as an exchange student in Columbia, and her friend Leo Rúa are in the newspaper today (jetzt – Süddeutsche Zeitung)! Within the last months they filmed and produced an interesting documentary in Bogotá. Titled „Der Russenpokal“ respectively „Die Geschichte vom Russenpokal und der seltsamsten Fußball-Liga der Welt“ (The history of the Russian Cup and of the world’s strangest football-league) the film portrays Russian construction workers in Bogotá who transform the city’s „El Virrey“ park into an improvised soccer pitch during their lunch break.

The film is about twelve minutes long and shown at the Münchner Stadtmuseum within the scope of the exhibition „Fußball: Ein Spiel – viele Welten“ (Football: One game – many worlds) open till the 3rd of September.

Gooooooooool …
