Peladão - Elf Freunde und eine Königin

Peladão - Elf Freunde und eine Königin

Großbritannien / Deutschland 2005, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

In the Brazilian city of Manaus, deep in the heart of the Amazon, more than 1,000 soccer teams converge every year to battle each other for the most glorious honor of all – the Peladão Championship title. Mostly unknown to the world’s soccer fans, this highly unusual competition is woven deeply into the fabric of Amazonian culture. However, it’s not merely the excitement generated by the games that makes the Peladão one of the most exiting soccer tournaments in the world. Each team is represented by a beauty queen who can enable her defeated team to return to the competition if she succeeds in the tournament’s beauty contest. These sparkling Amazon beauties account for at least half of the excitement.

A documentary which uncovers a completely unique world of soccer, Peladão is also a colorful introduction to a delightful people and their zealous enthusiasm for the sport.
