Everyman is thrilled to have the directors of the film, Sam Johnson, Zachary Fernandez and Matt Robertson in venue in this UK premiere of the definitive film putting footballing, political and social rivalry between Spain’s Barcelona FC and Real Madrid CF. The film will also be followed by live panel discussion with Sky Sports Spanish expert Guillem Balague, author Jimmy Burns plus other guests (TBC).
What more can be said about the massive rivalry between the most biggest clubs in the world, Real Madrid and Barcelona? A lot especially when it’s said by a group of nine Chico State University students who travel to Spain in an attempt to understand the famous rivalry.
In EL CLASSICO, the group spends nine days in April 2010 interviewing Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Iker Casillas, and others looking for the historical, geographical, cultural, and political underpinnings of the eternal clash between Los Merengues and the Blaugrana.
