Barça Dreams, the movie, which premiered last October in Spain, has awakened great interest in the international market. In just two months, Filmax International, the distributor, has closed an unprecedented number of rights contracts to exhibit the film in more than twenty different territories including Mexico and the rest of the Latin American countries, USA, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Japan, Russia, Australia, Poland, the former Yugoslavia countries, Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.
Like in Spain, in most of the countries Barça Dreams will be initially shown in cinemas although the main means of dissemination is through TV and Video On Demand (VOD). Not very often, a documentary film about a sports club has raised so much interest outside our country. In Spain, both Televisió de Catalunya and Televisión Española, the two broadcasting co-producers, will broadcast the film on free TV during the months of January and February and in March. The movie will already be available on DVD and Video on Demand.
Directed by the journalist and film-maker Jordi Llompart, BARÇA DREAMS is the most complete FC Barcelona documentary feature film ever produced. It offers a review of the most important facts and people who have contributed to forge the slogan “More than a club”. Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta, Lionel Messi and Gerard Piqué, are some of the participants in the film together with some former players and coaches like Johan Cruyff, Louis Van Gaal, Ronald Koeman, Gary Lineker, Carles Rexach, José Mari Bakero or Eric Abidal. Pau Gasol, the world basketball star, the historian Carles Santacana and the sports journalists Graham Hunter or Ramon Besa have also participated in the film.
The movie is the reflection of the passion, feelings and dreams of those who have forged the history of FC Barcelona. It also explains the evolution of the “total football” system initiated by Rinus Michels and Johan Cruyff in the 70s and which has reached the highest point with the recent generation of great players trained in La Masia, who have conquered the last four European Cups, among them the fifth Champions last June.
Barça Dreams is a real emotional trip to the soul of the Club founded by the passionate dreamer Joan Gamper over 100 years ago. It analyses the achievements of its main characters like Kubala, Cruyff, Ronaldinho or Messi, the battles with the eternal rival, Real Madrid, and the implementation of an unmistakable way of playing that has turned the club into one of the most admired clubs of the past years.
BARÇA DREAMS is a GEN IMAGE MEDIA production that counts with the participation of ENTROPY STUDIO, TVC, TVE, and the collaboration of FC Barcelona. FILMAX INTERNATIONAL is the international distributor.
