Before the Boca Juniors friendly, I mentioned seeing a documentary on the soccer-mad folk down in Argentina. The film, Argentina Futbol Club, was produced by a pair of local filmmakers, who had a few viewings last month at the Azzurri Vino Bar in Fremont.
Later this month you’ll have a couple chances to see it for yourself (or again if you caught it last month) at a theater in West Seattle. Here’s the release on the upcoming showings.
