Director Statement

Football is the sport that has more fans worldwide, I know because I’m one of them, I learnt and became who I am in the field. I never played it professionally, but I’ve always enjoyed it.
My biggest passion is filmmaking, and every drop of visual culture that I can receive from the world. That’s the reason that made blind football so important in my personal history. It forced me to discover the world with all of my other senses.
I decided to make a documentary to tell the story of Los Topos because the FIFA and the mexican sports institutions are stuck in corruption scandals meanwhile the fans keep on supporting their teams.
In this documentary I want to tell the story of how the players of Los Topos found in blind football a reason to keep on playing this sport even when they had to stop doing because of their blindness.
I think that football is just not the million-dollar business or the gigantic stadiums, but the everyday of every fan around the world, how a team can start as a reason to play, but ends up becoming the most important part of your life.
This is what happened with Los Topos, it started as a group of people that wanted to play football, but kept on growing until they became the national champions and got their chance to be a part of the national team that will compete in Rio Paralympic games 2016.
This is a story that I got to witness in first row, and I want people to feel inspired as I did when I discovered the motivation that this team put in everything they did to become who they are now.
