Fulboy

Documentary Argentina 2015

Football as never shown on TV: locker rooms, hotel rooms at the training camp, players' private lives. The director, also a former amateur footballer, interviews the players in the professional football team his brother Tomás plays for, all against the background of the World Cup final where Argentina lost to Germany. The director talks with the players, asks their opinions, provokes and teases them when their guard is down. Meanwhile, he shoots their sensual innocence while in the intimacy of a shower, in bed, in risqué poses, combining curiosity, investigative journalism and voyeurism. He is sometimes seen as an intruder, sometimes as an unexpected interlocutor looking for confessions that are often astonishing. Martín Farina's directorial debut is an unusual, "fetish" docu-fiction produced by Marco Berger, who has already been our guest at TGLFF with his short film El reloj (2008) and his feature films Ausente (2011), Sexual Tension: Volatile (2012) and Sexual Tension: Violetas (2013).
