Short Film Profile


John (32), an amateur soccer player, is competing with his teammates for a very important tournament, in which they haven't reached decisive instances from a long time ago.

Film notes

With John we will make a tour to his personal life, the passionate inner world of "pichangas de barrio" (neighborhood kickabouts) and the different characters that comprise "Lo Espinoza Football Club"

Pichangueros is a story of passion, of how a human group has a enthusiastic relationship with football and how our protagonist shows how this passion becomes a cornerstone of his life.
Also, in a way, is a story about the karma of the Chilean people, that turns losses into moral victories.
