On Sunday I sat down with the directors and subjects of the SXSW in-competition documentary Pelada, about one couple’s journey around the world examining the regional differences and similarities in soccer pickup games across the globe.



Leave it to non-fiction filmmaking to engross me in the story of a sports-related subject I previously knew and cared little about. That’s exactly what the soccer documentary Pelada does, immersing me in a fascinating human story and being a damned impressive sports documentary at the same time.
