A documentary about U.C.CEARES and the true values of football.
Have you ever wanted to turn off your TV when the sports news is on? Do you think that the entertainment industry is a sport-devouring monster? Do you agree that all football teams and their players only think about money?
The answer is: NOT ALL OF THEM!
We introduce you to U.C.CEARES , a small team in Gijon trying to get ahead with the lowest budget on its category. After years when the club nearly disappeared today the club survives thanks to the enthusiasm of a few friends.
Their motto makes it clear:
The less money, the more passion
Staying afloat one more Sunday through self-management as a system to fight for survival.
Four seasons ago, the club was agonizing due to financial constraints until club members, with no experience in sports management, decided to take over CEARES as an assembly club. Today the team is thriving, the atmosphere in the neighbourhood of La Cruz is envied by all teams in the league. Despite their scant resources, each year the club attracts more and more quality players. However, there are difficulties too for the U.C.Ceares . Being the poorest team in the category also means that it is a struggle to keep the project alive. But the U.C.Ceares has something extraordinary that regular clubs don't have: the pride of knowing that the team is everyone who is part of it . A story of survival in times of astronomical football.
What will we do with your contributions ??
We need your help to make El Equipo de mi barrio a reality. Since 2013 we have regularly visited Gijón where we have already shot unforgettable sequences. Now we need to return and stay three more weeks to finish our documentary. It is the last minute of the game and we got a penalty shot.
Help us to win this final!
What if we exceeded our goal?
This would be great news . We would put extra resources into post-production and intensify our efforts in search of national and international festivals in which to take part . Once we’ve reached our goal, we will let you know about extra rewards that everyone (yes, we said everyone!) will receive.
Let's do it!
