| In search of Maradona
Five English teenagers from diverse backgrounds hatch a plan to travel from New York City to Buenos Aires to meet their hero, Diego Maradona. All are masters of "freestyle football" – an extreme form of keepie-uppie. The plan is to finance the road trip by busking, staging impromptu street exhibitions in the cities of North and South America. There's some amazing skill on display here - notably juggling with various fruits and vegetables in a market in Guatemala City (I think). But rather than the football, the film focuses on the lads' motivations, and the growing tensions that threaten to derail their efforts as they edge closer to their goal. A rather strange documentary, but engrossing.
