“Manchester Disunited And Other Football Feuds”

Given by:
Adrian Goldberg, Journalist & Film-Maker

Synopsis:
There’s mutiny in the air at England’s football grounds as fans tire of seeing their sport become the plaything of foreign billionaires overseen by apathetic “guardians” of the game. Nowhere more so than at Manchester United, where the Glazer family’s takeover has saddled the world’s richest club with millions of pounds of debt – which will have to pay for.

In this personal video essay football fan and film-maker Adrian Goldberg celebrates the formation of a breakaway club, FC United, and explores alternative ways of running the beautiful game. The video screening will be followed by a question and answer session.
